VIU Global Citizens Week Panel

Vancouver Island University 900 Fifth Street, Nanaimo, BC, Canada

Something to Write Home About: Sharing Stories of Here, There, and Everywhere  VIU Nanaimo Campus B356/R109 Join the CREW 431 Portal magazine class, and 4 of its contributors to the 2023 issue, for a panel discussion about the places we call home—Nepal, Chile, Brazil, India—and the ways in which those formative memories and cultures inform our essays, fiction, poems, and scripts. These works introduce readers to parts of the world delicately nuanced through personal introduction and contrast to, and commonalities with, the Canada we define through experiences both unique and universal. VIU's annual week-long event takes place from February 6-10 this year. For more information including the complete 2023 schedule of events, check out the Global Citizens Week page.
