Event Details

Many writers hone their chops with other creators’ OC (original content): expanding universes, creating brand new characters, and flexing their writing muscles by adopting another’s voice & style.

Books featured:

William Morrow (HarperCollins)

“This book is fast, furious, compelling, and angry as hell.” — Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author

The Boys meets My Year of Rest and Relaxation in this smart, imaginative, and evocative novel of love, betrayal, revenge, and redemption, told with razor-sharp wit and affection, in which a young woman discovers the greatest superpower—for good or ill—is a properly executed spreadsheet.

Augur Magazine

In Ancient Rome, an Augur was a religious official who looked for the will of the gods in the flight patterns of birds, and made predictions based on the stories they read there. In contemporary Toronto, Augur is a literary magazine that believes we can better engage with our pasts, presents, and futures through stories that explore what-ifs and could-bes.
