About this Event

About this Event

The 'Bookstagram' community has flourished on social media over the last few years, creating a unique space for readers and writers. For authors and bloggers, Bookstagram can be a great tool for sharing your work and connecting with like minded readers. With the right approach, there is so much potential this community can bring you— promoting your project, getting it into the hands of readers, creating fun and shareable content or simply enjoying book reviews and gorgeous bookish photos. Join Book Blogger, Writer and DD Marketing Coordinator Tiara Jade Chutkhan for a workshop on creating high quality bookish content, finding your niche and attracting the right following for your Bookstagram page.

Tiara Jade Chutkhan is a writer, editor and researcher born and raised in Toronto. Her love of literature led her to start blogging and sharing her reads, particularly those by Caribbean authors. Tiara's Indo-Caribbean heritage is extremely important to her and she strives to create representation for her community. Her writing is geared toward exploring the Indo-Caribbean diaspora, its history and culture.

Tiara is the Editor-in-Chief at The Brown Girl Diary and Marketing Assistant at Diaspora Dialogues. She is a regular contributor for The Brown Girl Diary and Caribbean Collection Magazine. Tiara is also working towards a certificate in Creative Writing from University of Toronto.

Tiara is currently working on putting together an anthology of Indo-Caribbean fiction and developing a short documentary on Indo-Caribbean representation in Toronto.

Diaspora Dialogues (DD) supports emerging writers to turn their craft into a career through mentorship, professional development and opportunities to publish and present their work. Our mentoring programs are the most successful in the country for alumni getting published. More than 750 writers/artists have participated as mentors or mentees, emerging playwrights or dramaturges, commissioned artists or panelists, readers or performers. 450+ new literary works have been created through DD programs, 300 events produced and a live audience well in excess of 150,000 Canadians has attended those events. DD also publishes TOK Magazine, an online platform for fiercely honest, freshly original writing and convenes TOK Symposiums, multi-day events for readers and writers which combine author talks and professional development seminars.

During these strange and challenging times, Diaspora Dialogues continues to support those who create stories we turn to for comfort, solace, and strength — our authors. To do that we need your help.
