Event description
Paper Covers Rock is a new annual readers and writers festival on Salt Spring Island, BC, taking place October 1-3, 2021.

About this event

In this multi-genre workshop Aislinn will suggest aspects of craft and creative strategies that can enhance a writer's engagement with their real-life subject matter.

To witness is to pay attention and to observe; to bear witness is to carry a story within you even at a cost. This workshop will especially appeal to poets and non-fiction writers, or fiction writers with an interest in place or historical events.
