Write Along Radio is thrilled to announce that we're teaming up with Foment and the Ottawa International Writers Festival to bring roundtable conversations 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. Enjoy!
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. Find out more at www.WriteAlongRadio.com
Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
