We are so grateful to have been nominated for a World Poetry Empowered Writer’s Award! We will be accepting the award on Sunday October 19th 2014 in a small ceremony at Simon Fraser University Vancouver Campus. The award is being given as part of the Vancouver International Peace Festival. We want to thank the organizers and Ariadne Sawyer for their tireless efforts and amazing work putting this huge event together. During the festival, there are displays at the UBC Learning Exchange and the Irving Barber Learning Centre at UBC.
There will be a community partner Celebration at the New Westminster Public Library, October 22, 2014 and an all day peace and human rights film festival at the UBC Learning Exchange with directors from Afghanistan and the U.S. Partners from the Vancouver Asian Film Festival will also be attending.
