Join the Toronto Street Writers for the launch of their new anthology of poetry, West of What We Know.

The event will feature readings by young poets, hip hop lyricists, playwrights and short story writers whose work appears in the anthology. In celebration of the Queen's 60th Jubilee, there will also be an impromptu crown-making workshop where audience members will be encouraged to express what the monarchy means to them.

The Street Writers are a celebrated group of young writers from many different cultures and walks of life across the city. The group meets weekly, ten months out of the year, and is coordinated by award-winning local author Emily Pohl-Weary. Young writers work with professional authors, musicians, artists and screenwriters to generate the skills and confidence needed to express their realities, process difficult experiences and pursue careers and professional opportunities in the arts.

West of What We Know marks the fifth annual anthology of youth writing that the Street Writers have published.
