Event: WIN Canada 2013


Please consider attending the second annual Writers International Network 
March 23rd, at the Richmond Cultural Centre, Richmond, Canada

WIN is about promoting peace through understanding.  
Ashok, the founder, shares the groups vision
in this statement:

‘An artist’s gift to the world is a poem, story, painting, sculpture or dance. WIN will seek, nourish and recognize all sorts of artists so that together they can make this world a better place to live.’
‘Writing is an art that is deeply rooted in self-reflection. Self-reflection is the human capacity to exercise introspection and the willingness to learn more about our fundamental nature, purpose and essence. In other words, self reflection is who we see when we look in the mirror. Self reflection is also about taking the time to figure out who we are, both as individuals and as leaders.’
‘WIN is created to fulfil the need of an environment where the work of an artist is appreciated and recognized no matter what background, what language or what cultural heritage that artist belongs to.’
Ashok BhargavaFounder, Writers International Network (WIN)


If you want to hear writers from other parts of world, are excited by new voices and points of view,  and/or are looking to expand your writer-friend network, then I recommend this event for you.

I am also pleased to announce, although I am not a finalist, I have been asked to read my poem "River Ink" at the event.  It is an honor to be among so many wonderful writers.
