Industry Brainstorming Session: Sean Cranbury
June 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Starting in 2019, the West Coast Book Prizes Society will officially change its public name to the BC and Yukon Book Prizes. Representation for Yukon has been present in the society’s constitution since 1985 when it was founded. Join us to discuss ideas on how the organization can support the Yukon writing industry.
Join Sean Cranbury, the Executive Director of the BC and Yukon Book Prizes, for an industry brainstorming session. How can accessibility and inclusivity be increased in the province and territory for writers, literary creators, and book publishers? From the perspective of the BC and Yukon Book Prizes, this is a conversation about being present in the communities that they serve. It’s about partnering and collaborating with likeminded organizations in these areas to help curate, host, and promote events featuring writers and creators of excellence.
This session is an opportunity to work together to increase the strength of our knowledge sharing networks and help writers to connect to each other, to publishers, and other key services across the country.
