  1. Not only is this conference the best in Canada I would argue it is the best period. I followed my book Grey Redemption to both the London Book Fair and Book Expo America this year and Surrey is better. I attended Roberts work shop on dialects and he is an awesome presenter. Having him and Slade together on a panel for genre bending. Wow! Make the time to attend it is money well spent.

  2. Hi Hunter,

    Any chance these lectures would be available after the conference in some form?



    • Hi, John.

      That’s a good question. I’ve been trying to find someone who can record them for me, either audio or video, but haven’t been successful yet.


      • Hopefully you’ll find somebody who could do that. I’ll happily pay to download copies or podcasts containing the lectures.

        Take care
