Connect with Canada’s most provocative and positive writers at its new spring festival. The week includes readings and events with Kate Harris, Marcello Di Cintio, Jamal Jivani, and Tima Kurdi. There’s even a night where Wordfest and the League of Canadian Poets have teamed up to present timeless, evocative poetry with four visionaries—Rayanne Haines, Emma Healey, David Martin, and Arleen Paré—as well as the return of Word Play—a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a new Canadian play with Alberta Theatre Projects’ Playwrights Unit. Sane Takes on an Insane World runs April 16 to 23, 2018 and the full schedule can be found at wordfest.com.
