Vancouver Writers Fest

61. Crossing Genres


The Vancouver Writers Fest presents

AMBER DAWN, CLAUDIA DEY, JAAP ROBBEN, JORDAN TANNAHILL

Moderator: Shaena Lambert

Some writers’ talents traverse form. Four of these unusual polymaths engage in a discussion about their work. Amber Dawn (Sodom Road Exit) is an award-winning writer and the co-artistic director of the Vancouver Queer Film Festival. Claudia Dey (Heartbreaker) wins accolades for her play- and novel-writing alike. Jaap Robben (You Have Me to Love) is a multidisciplinary author and artist revered in Europe. Jordan Tannahill is described by the Toronto Star as “one of Canada’s most accomplished young playwrights, filmmakers and all-round multidisciplinary artists.” Do their stories always manifest in a particular medium, or does deciding how to use an idea come later? How does the evolution of their work in one area impact the others? Do they ever feel hindered by their cross-industry approach? Creativity runneth over during this intelligent conversation.
