Writers including Dionne Brand, Karen Connelly, Steven Heighton and Linden MacIntyre gave readings at the annual Eden Mills Writers' Festival earlier this month.

To publicize the festival and to celebrate the late Paul Quarrington, a frequent contributor to the festival, The Bookshelf in Guelph hosted an evening of readings accompanied by performances from Paul's posthumous album The Songs.

In this video, filmed at the 2008 Eden Mills Writers' Festival and produced by TickleScratch Productions, Paul Quarrington muses on why he—or anybody—writes.
