PEN Canada hosted its annual benefit on the opening night of the IFOA 2013. Vietnamese blogger, Dieu Cay, was awarded PEN’s One Humanity Award for his advocacy for human rights and Stephen King and Owen King discussed the writing life with Andrew Pyper.
In lead up to our double feature with Stephen King and Owen King, we collected writing advice from Stephen’s memoir, On Writing. It’s a short read because “most books about writing are filled with bullshit,” he writes. In this spirit we’ve further condensed his advice to these essentials.
A new block of tickets will be released on Tuesday, October 1, at 1:00 p.m. and can be bought from the Harbourfront Centre Box Office (416–973–4000) or by visiting www.ifoa.org
