Writer’s Conference: Panel Discussion, Q&A and Keynote Address

The Western Perceptions Writer’s Conference will bring best-selling Indigenous and Non-Indigenous authors share their literary perspectives!

This first-ever Writer’s Conference for Wood Buffalo is happening on December 10, 2022. Planned by Indigenous Co-Director, Frederick McDonald, and non-Indigenous Co-Director, Therese Greenwood, this event is open to writers and readers.

The evening will include a panel discussion, Q&A Session, a Keynote Address and a catered gathering by Meals and Things.

This unique event will look at the idea of the ‘Western Hero’ and ‘Indian’ stereotype in popular media and how artists, whether Indigenous or non-Indigenous, deal with these subjects. Each artist will have an opportunity to discuss their perspective on either of the subjects or both.

During the gathering, a presentation keynote address will be given by Drew Hayden Taylor.
