STEAL THIS FESTIVAL

The Scream Literary Festival – in its 16th year of innovative performances,
panels and unique events – has officially run out of ideas. Instead of
getting bogged down in novelty, we're begging, borrowing and stealing this
festival as we highlight issues of influence among artists, musicians and
countercultural movements. From July 3rd to 14th we upload a series of
poetry performance events, workshops, music, food and thought, all playing
with notions of copyright, collaboration, and appropriation.

On opening night established writers spotlight up-and-comers and our own
history turns digital. On July 5th, the book-length dinner reading returns
with Gwendolyn MacEwen's A Breakfast for Barbarians, read by a new
generation of poets. The festival culminates on July 14th with the
ever-popular Scream in High Park Mainstage, featuring a stupendous line up
of performers.

Plunder away!
