WGA (YYC) – ELEMENTS OF INDIGENOUS STYLE; A GUIDE FOR WRITING BY AND ABOUT INDIGENOUS PEOPLES WITH GREGORY YOUNGING

Saturday, March 10th |1:00—3:00pm
Memorial Park Library, Main Floor Salon | 1221 2 St SW, Calgary, AB 
Please RSVP here via Facebook

The Book Publishers Association of Alberta and the Writers’ Guild of Alberta are pleased to present an informative talk (and book launch) addressing guidelines aimed to help writers, editors, and publishers produce material that reflects Indigenous people in an appropriate and respectful manner. Features include guidance on working in a culturally sensitive way, a discussion of problematic and preferred terminology, and suggestions for editorial guidelines.

This is a free event.

Gregory Younging, a member of the Opaskwayak Cree Nation in Northern Manitoba, has been the managing editor of Theytus Books, the first Aboriginal-owned publishing house in Canada, for over 13 years. Elements of Indigenous Style evolved from the house style guide Gregory developed at Theytus in order to ensure content was consistent and respectful.
