PEI Writers’ Guild Open Mic: Orysia Dawydiak

Receiver Coffee Co.

Orysia Dawydiak will be the first featured reader of the new season at the PEI Writers’ Guild Open Mic on Thursday, September 13 at 7 pm at the Receiver Coffee Co., 128 Richmond St. in Charlottetown.

Orysia Dawydiak has always been a keen student of human and animal behaviour. Her first novel was inspired by the story of her parents’ emigration from Europe to Canada after World War II, and how their traumas and culture shaped them and affected their offspring. She also writes for young people—from life on an island sheep farm, to coastal fishing communities where the possibilities of alternate life forms become real. She is currently working on two memoirs, one of them about a remarkable Turkish working dog who travelled the world.

All are welcome to this free event. The first ten writers to sign up may read from their work—poetry or prose—for up to 5 minutes. Following a short break, Orysia will read. The PEI Writers’ Guild Open Mic Series will continue to run on the second Thursday of each month.
