Last week I had the opportunity to attend the National Forum on the Literary Arts hosted by the Canada Council in Montreal. The forum brought together ~250 participants from the literary arts from across Canada to discuss a future vision for Canadian literature. Participants came from an array of professions; authors, editors, librarians, literary agents, government organizations, educators, media, storytellers, publishers, booksellers (I think?) and association staff were all present. The purpose was to get a variety of different views on how digital change is affecting the ‘literary milieu.
