For the past 27 years, The Word On The Street has been renowned for the quality and diversity of its event programming. See the lineup of incredible Canadian literary talent that appeared at our 28th festival on September 24, 2017.
For 20 years, Chirp Magazine has engaged children around the world through hands-on learning. Chirp recipes are a great way to build early literacy and math skills while having fun, too! Come meet Chirp and help him and Chirp editor Jackie Farquhar whip up a sweet treat.
As the editor of Chirp, Jackie curates the magazine’s content, writes, and edits each issue. She also contributes to chickaDEE and OWL Magazines by editing fiction and writing the crafts and recipes — her desk is often covered in glitter and glue! But the best part of her job is getting to hang out with Chirp and meeting readers at local events.
