Word Vancouver Festival – September 2014

PRISM is excited to participate in the Word Vancouver festival this weekend! This annual festival—held at Library Square in downtown Vancouver—is always a fun weekend full of events, conversation, and appreciation of all things reading and writing.

PRISM will have a booth in the exhibitor marketplace on Sunday—pop by to say hi, meet PRISM’s editors and volunteers, and check out our brand new issue. We’ll also have information on our upcoming non-fiction, poetry and fiction contests, special deals, and a secret photo opportunity worth tweeting about. Hint: #octocup

In the afternoon, PRISM is participating in Magazine Words, a series of readings and panels focused on Canadian literary magazines. The event starts at 11am inside Blenz Coffee in Library Square, and includes readings hosted by PRISM, subTerrain, Room, EVENT, The Capilano Review, The New Quarterly and The Fiddlehead. Come for the full day, or stop by at 2:20pm to hear talented PRISM contributors Karen J Lee and Rachel Rose read their work and answer a few questions from the audience. Hosted by our own JL Lori!
