Symposium on Manitoba Writing to mark the 30th birthday of the Manitoba Writers Guild

Celebrating the rich history of Manitoba writers during the last century (or so)

We’ve survived our own debt, the computer, the internet, the Kindle, light-emitting diodes, communism, capitalism, two wars in Iraq, the Kardashians and Harry Potter. And we’re celebrating in a way that only writers would: with a Symposium on Manitoba Writing. And an anniversary Cabaret to cap it all off!
