2012 Word on the Street is always lots of fun…

I am standing at the booth for Historic Joy Kogawa House – where I am president of the Historic Joy Kogawa House Society, and we now organize a writer-in-residence program, after we saved the childhood home of author Joy Kogawa in 2005.
It’s always great to see friends at WOTS.  Here we have Todd Wong, Marisa Alps (Harbour Publishing), Emiko Morita (Douglas MacIntyre), Jim Wong-Chu (Asian Canadian Writers’ Workshop) and Angela McWhirter.
May Q. Wong reads her story from the Canada Writes stage.
Anna Ling Kaye is also a literary editor for PRISM magazine, as well as president for Asian Canadian Writers’ Workshop.
Editor Alex Samur gives us a thumbs up from the Rabble.ca booth.
Elizabeth Balchinsky, editor of Event Magazine interviews Vancouver’s Poet Laureate Evelyn Lau and Creative Writing instructor Cathleen Witt.
