The first Controversy at Noon, hosted by the Writers Guild of Alberta runs on Wednesday January 24th, 2024, 12 – 1 PM MST, (Online, Free).
The ethics of writing on social issues can be a complicated topic of conversation for writers: What does it mean, really? Are certain issues off-limits for particular writers? What are the types of issues that fall under this very broad theme? How can we strive to write characters and narratives that feel meaningful, informed, and appropriate to the story we’re trying to tell? Join our group of panellists as they discuss the ethics of writing on social issues during our first Controversy @ Noon panel in 2024.
