Slant is part reading series, part fundraiser. Our goal is simple: to bring literature and activism together under one roof, and, in so doing, to spark conversations about the power of writing to elicit real-world change. At every event, we provide a platform for three to four socially engaged writers, and we partner with a local advocacy organization in order to raise awareness, funds, and support. We’re all about celebrating the variety and vibrancy of Canadian literature while giving writers and readers the chance to make a difference. Each event includes featured readers and an open mic.
