This interactive evening will feature writers from eight Ottawa-based workshops including Indigenous, BIPOC, Black, Caribbean and African groups as well as anglophone and francophone mental health peer support groups and a laid-back Sunday morning group that attracts writers from far afield.

Audience members will be invited to offer comments, moderated by our MCs, on what they found touching and memorable. Dancer Jasmine van Schouwen will offer a brief dance performance inspired by one of the francophone texts.
