The Vancouver Writers Fest presents
2. Pen to Power
IVAN COYOTE, HUMBLE THE POET, ALICIA TOBIN
Moderator: Jen Sookfong Lee
We all have power. These writers demonstrate that knowing who we are—and celebrating that—is the first step to unleashing it.
Setbacks in life are inevitable, but often lead to discovering our inner-strength. Three lauded storytellers know this all too well. During this empowering, humorous conversation, each shares their journey to self-awareness. Writers Fest veteran and multi-award-winning author Ivan Coyote depicts what it means to be trans and non-binary in Rebent Sinner. Alicia Tobin opens up about depression, and the importance of talking about mental health, in So You’re a Little Sad, So What?. Rapper and bestselling author Humble The Poet describes his rocky start to life, and the importance of forging our own wisdom through lived experience. We all have power. These writers demonstrate that knowing who we are—and celebrating that—is the first step to unleashing it.
