The ECU Writing Centre presents the On Edge Reading Series, which seeks to enrich literary and writing communities both inside and outside of the Emily Carr University community.

The series showcases the work of writers who are doing the freshest, most interesting, and relevant work, writers who are also artists, volunteers, literary award winners, social justice organizers, prison abolitionists, literary organizers, dancers, managing editors, filmmakers, creative writing instructors, and scholars. The On Edge programming serves to enrich literary and writing communities both inside and outside of ECUAD. The series is support by the Emily Carr Writing Centre with grateful acknowledgement to the Canada Council for the Arts and the Coast Salish First Nations whose traditional lands we are on.

All readings are FREE and open to the public. ASL interpretation is provided for all readings.

This series is organized and hosted by Mercedes Eng and assisted by Tenaya.
