Word on the Street is an annual festival of all things literary, gathering inspiring minds in one place to talk award-winning novels and thought-provoking journalism. This year, we’re especially excited for the Canadian Magazines tent. This Magazine will extol the virtues of working on a small publication, Spacing will talk about the importance of blogs to cities and neighbourhoods (OH HE-EY!), and WORN Fashion Journal‘s editors are bringing together an exciting panel, including iwantigot’s Anita Clarke, to talk diversity and fashion magazines.

Elsewhere at the fest, the Cooks ‘n’ Books Stage will present delicious vegetarian recipes from Fresh, a presentation on the Odd Bits (that’s the rest of the animal) cooking trend from Jennifer McLagan, an exploration of Italian cooking with Mark McEwan, and more. And, of course, you’re bound to find at least five new favourite books, and maybe hear your favourite author speak, at one of the many tents celebrating amazing Canadian writers, or in the marketplace.

For all the exciting programming, check out the Word on the Street site. See you on Sunday!
