Why festival?

Foment and Write Along RadioAs we step into the season of Writing Festivals, Write Along Radio is thrilled to announce that we’re teaming up with Foment and the Ottawa International Writers Festival to bring round table conversations to you straight from the festival itself.
In part one of our special series, we’re talking about the value of community and having a public space as both readers and writers, to come together and exchange ideas freely. It’s about moving from the page, and sparking real person-to-person conversation. We talk with Sean Wilson, co-founder and creative director of the festival itself, and Daniel Bezalel Richardsen, Editor of the literary journal Foment.


During the OIWF’s festival season we’ll be coming out with more of these round-table conversations. The fun thing about this, is you never know what is going to happen next. Conversations are unplanned and unrestricted. Eep!
