I {Heart} WritersFest

Last weekend I was lucky enough to take part in Kingston WritersFest as an onstage host to Stephen Galloway’s discussion on his new book, The Confabulist.  WritersFest is not just a star-studded 5 days of writers (I have a serious weak-in-the-knees awe-dmiration for authors) descending on Kingston to ply their latest work.  It is an important purveyor of a major art form both in its efforts promoting the literary community here in Kingston but also in its hosting the incredible international talent that comes to visit and inspire that literary community.  They work with all ages and all backgrounds in their attempt to keep books a part of our everyday life here in Kingston.  Not only that but current artistic head Barbara Bell and former one Merilyn Simonds both volunteer their time to help other artists and arts organizations (including Theatre Kingston) get better at what they do.  They believe in making Kingston a creative community and they inspire others to believe it too.
