Join Portal magazine for an online Portfolio Reading moderated by Patrick Wilson (Wet’suwet’en) and featuring three VIU writers who have crafted works that speak to their unique cultures: Kesu Beaton (2S Tla'amin, Lilwat, and Namgis), Danielle Minnis (Bahamian), and Gabriel Villasmil (Venezuelan). Each writer will perform a seven-minute excerpt of a larger work followed by facilitated discussion on the notion of sharing and correcting stereotypes and inequities to do with culture through prose, poetry, and script.

Join via Zoom

Hosted by Creative Writing and Journalism (CREW)
