From freshly printed pages to the bright screens of smartphones, the ways in which people are reading the written word are varied and changing each day. On October 20th, please join the English Course Union 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. The evening begins at 5:30 with a short reception with light refreshments. Guests will be able to mingle and speak with our speakers and publisher exhibitors (inlcuding Inspiritus Press) at that time. Ryerson Mathematics professor and Wattpad author 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 is one of several events tailored to connect Ryerson English and Arts students with the creative writing and publishing industries. Please see the poster for additional information. Please let us know if we need to make an accessibility accommodations to ensure your inclusion in this event.
