MB-9AB, (John Molson School of Business, 9th Floor)
Concordia University, 1450 rue Guy

What does a professional writing career look like in the 21st century? How we do explore and sustain and juggle different roles? What’s out there?

CASE Concordia and the Quebec Writers’ Federation have teamed up to bring together three Quebec-based writers with very different career profiles: screenwriter and filmmaker Tara Johns (The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom), Giller-Prize-winning novelist, blogger, and interactive digital fiction writer Sean Michaels (Us Conductors), and playwright and artistic director ofTeesri Duniya theatre company Rahul Varma (Truth and Treason, Bhopal, State of Denial). We’ll talk about switching up professions and disciplines, as well as writing in the digital age. Come query them on how they did – and are doing – it!

This event is free and open to Concordia students, as well as QWF Student Members. Concordia students, reserve tickets with your student ID number at case.president@asfa.ca. QWF student members, email rachel@qwf.org to reserve a place.
