Blog Alert! Carrie Snyder writes about the Wild Writers Festival in Waterloo

Share |

Carrie Snyder, author of the GG-nominated short story collection The Juliet Stories (House of Anansi Press), has written in her blog, Obscure CanLit Mama, about her experience at the Wild Writers Festival in Waterloo.

The festival occurred just this past weekend (November 2-3) and was its first year. Carrie writes that she has been to many writers festivals across Canada, each unique in their own way. The Wild Writers Festival was the "most academic" she had attended; however, "it was not stuffy. It was comfortable."

The Wild Writers Festival contained master class sessions for writers and those interested in becoming writers, as well as panels and readings. In her blog, Carries documents her day from being interviewed and appearing on a radio show to her attendance at particular panels and her own panel as well.

And then she concludes with her attempt at baking bread. A bit obscure.
