We are excited to be hosting our TOK Winnipeg Symposium for the second year. TOK Winnipeg is a free two-day symposium for writers and readers that will take place November 15-16, 2019 at The Manitoba Museum. TOK, is the digital magazine under the non-profit charitable organization Diaspora Dialogues which publishes fiercely honest, freshly original writing from our cities, and from around the world.
Day one will consist of two writing masterclasses on YA Fiction and Writing Your Personal Myth and one industry workshop on How to Pitch to an Agent or Publisher. All workshops are free to attend, but registration is required. Registration will be capped at 25 people per session, in order to allow direct engagement with speakers.
Day two includes two panel discussions, Writing While Black in CanLit and Vulnerability and the Public Space. There will also be two author interviews with Norma Dunning and Zalika Reid-Benta. All discussions held this day will be recorded and converted into a podcast series which will be released on tokmagazine.ca.
