quote + event listing = quovent?

A great weekend of readings and events is coming up, starting with Steven Heighton and Ian Williams Thursday night at the Robson Reading Series:

Robson Reading Series
Thursday, October 14th, 7:00 PM
UBC Library/Bookstore, Robson Square
800 Robson St. (Plaza Level), Vancouver
Featuring: Steven Heighton and Ian Williams

Steven also has twelve-or-twenty answers over at rob mclennan's blog. A sample:

The problem with allowing theories or ideologies to understrap your creative work is that they prescribe answers that you unconsciously (or consciously) write towards. Which is death, I think, for any creative enterprise. But of course there are ideological, or at least moral, questions I'm posing to myself when I write. (Questions but no clear answers). These days as a writer I seem to be circling issues of ethical intervention: when is it right to intervene in a situation and when does it make matters worse? Can you even tell beforehand? I guess basically now I'm writing to try to understand how to be a good person.

Read the whole thing here.

you meant friday for TWS, right? Otherwise thursday is both 14th and 15th of october. which probably makes sense in some alternate universe.

thanks for spreading the word, Rob.

Rob Taylor said...

Yes, Friday - thanks for catching that.

I feel for the poor folks who have to live in that alternate universe where Fridays become Thursdays...
