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.
This year we welcome 100 plus authors to the 2018 Festival, taking place from October 15-21 on Granville Island and across Vancouver. Under the curatorship of our Artistic Director Leslie Hurtig, this year’s lineup is a collection of voices that explore some of the most pressing topics of our time. Through their works, these authors share unexpected stories, delve into current events and, ultimately, enrich our understanding of what it is to be alive today.
