The Audible Indigenous Writers Circle has begun with 15 Indigenous participants from across the country workshopping their writing with five mentors over the coming months.
Three of the five mentors are Edmonton-based - Inuk writer and academic Norma Dunning, Richard van Camp , and Metis writer and professor Chelsea Vowel. The others are Tanya Talaga,and Kim Wheeler.
Vowel began her career as a blogger and says it's important for Indigenous people to have a space when they can develop their writing abilities .
The program will require students to submit their writing to the mentor, and the mentor provides them with feedback and direction, and sets a deadline for their next submission
