Canadian Writers Summit – Immigrant Stories Panel
June 18, 2016 @ 2:00 am - 3:15 pm
Immigrant experiences upon arriving in Canada are absolutely unique to them. Without those voices, we are not offering a truly authentic Canadian voice. However, immigrants’ stories need to hold up to the same writing standard as all others that are published. This is the challenge. So, how can we tell and share those stories if English or French are not their first language? Sometimes, that responsibility falls to the next generation. But, after the second or third generation, they are no longer “immigrant” stories. They are just stories. How can we ensure those stories are captured in time?
