September 18, 2008

Last Wednesday, the University of Manitoba opened its Centre for Creative Writing and Oral Culture, the first of its kind in Canada. The centre was created to provide a space for students, scholars, and visiting artists to collaborate and design works of verbal art, as well as study the relationships between oral and written culture. The CCWOC will offer a series of lectures, workshops, and public events designed to bring oral stories and literature into Manitoba communities. uManitoba News
