July 19 to 24, join Shani Mootoo (Cereus Blooms at Night, He Drown She in the Sea,Valmiki’s Daughter) and others for the Writers and Exile program at the Tatamagouche Centre on Nova Scotia’s North Shore. This writing workshop will expand its focus to also give attention to cultural assumptions in a world filled with intercultural connections and collisions. Mid-week, the evening world cafe brings in former Eritrean journalist, now PEN Canada writer in exile Aaron Berhand, to look more closely at the issues. For writers with some experience. Or check out the simultaneous Independent Retreat.
