Journey to the West: Writing across the Pacific

LiterASIAN 2018 final 10 AUG (no bleed)-1

Launched in 2013, LiterASIAN is an annual festival of Pacific Rim Asian Canadian writing and a community-building initiative of the Asian Canadian Writers Workshop (ACWW).
The first of its kind within Canada, the festival’s purpose is to promote and celebrate the works of Asian Canadian writers and artists through author readings, panel discussions, and workshop events, creating important and unique networking opportunities between professional and emerging writers, students, and members of the broader public to learn and discuss topics of importance to Asian Canadian writing. The festival also fosters stimulating discussions that inspire participating artists to converse, debate, and develop new work that revolves around Asian Canadian writing.
