Rapid-Fire Readings, Ricochet Writing: Finalists for the 2021 QWF Awards Read and Write Before Your Very Eyes
The Quebec Writers’ Federation invites you to a live-streamed version of their beloved, fast-paced event — Rapid-Fire Readings, Ricochet Writing: Finalists for the 2021 QWF Awards Read and Write Before Your Very Eyes as part of this year’s Salon du Livre de Montréal.
Here is the gist: Most of the finalists for the 2021 QWF Awards will go on stage and read one at a time from their shortlisted work—for only 120 seconds each! This is a strict time limit—a bell will ring them away from the microphone if they continue after the two-minute mark. Then, still on stage, each writer will sit down at a laptop to contribute on the spot to a collaborative text that will be read aloud at the end of the show by one of the participants.
This year’s event is part of “Le Salon dans la ville” and will be live-streamed on YouTube at 2pm on Saturday, November 20. The video will be made available to view there afterward.
