Two Tri-City-based writers’ groups will host virtual sessions next month.
Writers in our Midst has its 20th edition on Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. featuring Colleen van Niekirk and Pandora Ballard.
And, on Dec. 4 at 2 p.m., Tri-City Wordsmiths present a poetry workshop with Renée Sarojini Saklikar who wrote the ground-breaking poetry book about the bombing of Air India Flight 182.
Titled children of air india, the work clinched the Canadian Authors Association Poetry Prize and was shortlisted for the Dorothy Livesay Prize.
Sarojini Saklikar’s second book, The Revolving City: 51 Poems and the Stories Behind Them, was a finalist for the City of Vancouver Book Award.
