Writing for the Stage: A Masterclass for Emerging Indigenous Writers with Drew Hayden Taylor

11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Sunday, November 3rd

Museum London

In partnership with the London Public Library, the Words Festival is pleased to host a masterclass for emerging Indigenous writers and playwrights with the award-winning author Drew Hayden Taylor. An Ojibway writer from the Curve Lake First Nations in Ontario, Drew has worn many hats in his literary career, from performing stand-up comedy at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., to being Artistic Director of Canada’s premiere Native theatre company, Native Earth Performing Arts.

As an award-winning playwright, Drew has proudly been a part of what he refers to as the contemporary Native Literary Renaissance. He is the author of more than 20 plays (resulting in almost a hundred productions), including Toronto at Dreamer’s Rock, Only Drunks and Children Tell the Truth, The Berlin Blues, and Cottagers and Indians

Our masterclass is free and open to the entire community, though space is limited and priority will be given to emerging Indigenous writers.
