Innovations in Digital & Indie Publishing
Friday, October 20
5:30 - 8:00
About the Event
From freshly printed pages to the bright screens of smartphones, the ways in which people are reading the written word are various and changing each day. If you're a creative writer or someone interested in the publishing field, the English Course Union has an opportunity for you. On October 20th, please join us and the Centre for Digital Humanities in welcoming cell phone novel pioneer and award winning Wattpad Star Takatsu for a collaborative event on digital literature and indie publishing. We're proud to host him as our keynote speaker in LIB 405 (four floors up from the main floor of Ryerson's library).
The evening begins at 5:30 with a short reception with refreshments. Guests will be able to mingle and speak with our speakers/exhibitors at that time. Around 6:10, Dr. Anthony Bonato will start things off with an opening talk, directly followed by Takatsu. Afterwards, there will be an open Q & A session for both our guests and a raffle giveaway to close out the night. This will be one of several events tailored to engage Ryerson English and Arts Students with creative writing and publishing initiatives. We hope to involve many other groups and host more events such as this in the future.
