Young Writers From The Malvern Edge Fresh new writing from the hip!

Get in on the ground floor! Listen to brand new writing from young writers you’ll be sure to hear from again in the future. Fresh, honest, and raw - writing doesn’t get any more immediate than this.

For three weeks, a dedicated group of students at Lester B. Pearson Collegiate have been working on their writing with professional mentors. Now, the fruits of their labour can be enjoyed by everyone on Tuesday, March 18th at 6 pm. Diaspora Dialogues and the Toronto Public Library - Malvern Branch are honoured to present Young Writers From the Malvern Edge.

“Over and over again, we’re blown away by the enthusiasm and energy of young writers,” says Diaspora Dialogues president Helen Walsh. “They show tremendous courage in getting up there and putting a piece of themselves out for us to share. These kinds of readings are always exciting and moving.”

Each of the three weeks of workshopping focused on different forms of writing. Creative artist Donna-Michelle St. Bernard (also known as Belladonna) worked with them on spoken word; actor and playwright Marcia Johnson taught the basics of playwriting; and writer Saghi Ghahraman shared poetry writing secrets.

Along with readings and performances by the mentors, Young Writers From The Malvern Edge will feature new voices Darren Ashton, Gavin Bembridge, Anthony Frame-Wilson, Ewart Griffith, Sritha Korapathy, Asma Rahman and Sahar Ullah.
