The UBC Faculty of Law newsletter has a write-up of our Writers Caravan experience with the UBC Law students. Thanks to all who participated in uniting the writing communities. Although we had planned the Writers Caravan to be a one-off, plans are brewing to collaborate with UBC law again in the 2011/2012 course year.

Our pilot project is celebrating a culmination on Tuesday, June 21, 2011 at 7pm at Vancouver’s Roundhouse Community Centre. Four writing groups – UBC Law students, 2011 Writer’s Studio members, Write Club Literary Mamas and Thursdays Writing Collective are uniting for the first time. We have written together one-on-one and read on double bills throughout the spring but this will be the night all the groups and participants hear each other’s writing and reconnect. Join us!


Thanks to the City of Vancouver, Canada Council, Roundhouse Community Centre and Poetry is Dead for their support.

Thanks to all the writers from TWC and UBC!
