Her comedy writing has appeared on McSweeney's Internet Tendency and The Rumpus and she is the author of the picture book Ira Crumb Makes a Pretty Good Friend.

Writing, Women and World II

BY JO BAILEY
@ VOL 37 ON SEP 19, 2018

Jo Bailey is a full time freelance writer, editor and author who writes books in her 'spare time'. She has just published her fourth, called Never Forget, a collection of six extraordinary, true World War II stories.

In this PechaKucha, Jo introduces the courageous people in her book, whose lives were turned upside down by war. She also discusses her own journey as a reader and writer, which led to the creation of Never Forget. Jo hopes being reminded of the horrors of war might lead to a conversation about how we can move on from the things which divide us and focus instead on building community, compassion and love.

Where Do I Get My Ideas?

BY BESS HAMILTON
@ VOL 36 ON NOV 22, 2018

Writing is a practice that takes skill, dedication, and inspiration. The last of those three is sometimes hard to come by and it takes a good, steady search and an instinct to know what is or isn't inspiring and interesting enough to both write and read about.

Author Bess Hamilton's debut novel, Remembrance, was published in 2018 and in her PechaKucha Night Winnipeg talk, she talks about her inspirations for the book. Here, she gives us a peek into her brainstorming process for Remembrance, and insight into her style and approach to writing.

Bess' talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 36, on November 22 2018, at the Park Theatre.
