Ânskohk is currently
the only literary festival of its kind, and one of only a few in the country, showcasing the
talent of Aboriginal authors from across Canada, educating the general
population about the richness of Aboriginal literacy, and promoting
further understanding of Aboriginal peoples.
This year's Festival will kick off in Regina for the first time as we hold our second collaborative event with the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild Annual Conference beginning November 1 2013, and continue on with many panels - workshops - keynotes - and a new event November 2nd: the PotashCorp and SGI sponsored Literary Lunch featuring GREGORY SCOFIELD.
Besides Gregory Scofield, the Regina event also includes Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm, Andréa Ledding, and RICHARD VAN CAMP whose movie-based-on-a-novel, The Lesser Blessed,
has just been released by Monterey Media in the past year, debuting at
the Toronto International Film Festival. Many others authors will be in attendance and participating front and centre - and behind the scenes.
To register, visit the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild.
In Saskatoon on Monday November 4th at Station 20 West, doors open at 7 pm: "Words for a Freezing Moon" a program you won't want to miss, featuring readings from Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm, Gregory Scofield, Kevin Wesaquate, and Zoey "Pricelys" Roy.
Light refreshments will be served, admission by donation. We will also have a food collection bin for those who wish to donate non-perishable food items to the Saskatoon Food Bank.
And we are pleased to announce that Kimiwan will be present with a swag & merch table featuring their fabulous Zine.
Previous festivals have featured professional First Nations and Métis writers in Saskatoon
for a series of workshops, school visits and special events to promote
the diversity of talent among Aboriginal authors in Canada. We were
proud to welcome Tomson Highway and over a dozen talented writers to our 2011 festival.
The SAWCI-ÂNSKOHK Festival Committee would like to thank all of our sponsors, volunteers and participants for making this a most memorable event, and invite you to join us for 2013!
