Our 2016 event was once again held under the banner of the Ottawa International Writers’ Festival, at Christ Church Cathedral on Sunday, April 17 at 2 p.m. This time, eleven writers read their words – some funny, some sad, some joyful, some heartbreaking. Dani Donders of Postcards from the Mothership was once again our effervescent and delightful emcee, and Tanya Snook of Spydergrrl on the Web was our intrepid live tweeter.
Here are the posts that were read:
Megan Graham of Sticks and Stones: Material Girl
Juliette Giannesini of Correr Es Mi Destino: Breathing Space
Joe Boughner at Medium.com: And Nothing of Value was Lost
Allison McCaskill of Bibliomama: Reading: It’s Possible I’ve Been Doing It Wrong
