Rising from the Ashes: Loss and Transformation
Does experiencing loss make us better writers? Does a cathartic re-imagination of the complex layers of grief and anger unleash unexpected creativity? Is it also an opportunity to deeply entrench the reader by evoking pathos, understanding, and empathy?
Four authors share their journeys through loss that led to transformation, inspired and informed their creativity
A thought-provoking discussion with a panel of authors and poets Merle Nudelman ( The Seeker Ascends) , Elizabeth Greene ( A Season Among Psychics ), Logathasan (Das) Tharmathurai (The Sadness of Geography); Moderated by Ceta Ramkhalawansingh, National Chair, The Word On The Street and hosted by Michael Douglas, Executive Director, Mississauga Arts Council
