Opening Doors through Stories: Remembering Chapbook Launch

The Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild and the Regina Open Door Society are pleased to launch our chapbook, Opening Doors through Stories: Remembering. This collection showcases the diverse identities and experiences of newcomers to Canada through creative writing and this launch allows us to hear the power of their stories through their own voices. Hosted by Iryn Tushabe.
