Since 1990, The Word On The Street has proudly hosted some of the finest talent in Canadian literature. Our 28th festival was one of our best yet. Check out all of the authors, performers, and storytellers below!
Sarah Meehan Sirk is a writer, producer and broadcaster. Her short fiction has appeared in The New Quarterly, PRISM international, Room, Taddle Creek, and in Journey Prize Stories 27. She co-produced and hosted the 2015 CBC Radio One series Stripped, has worked on Q (now q) and DNTO and is a founding producer of Day 6 with Brent Bambury. She studied math and philosophy at the University of Toronto, and was mentored by David Adams Richards at the Humber School for Writers. She lives in Toronto.
In this deeply felt, compulsive and edgy work, Sarah Meehan Sirk shines a distinctive light on love and death in their many incarnations, pushing against the limits of the absurd while exposing piercing emotional truths about what it means to be gloriously, maddeningly alive. Uncanny, sometimes violent, achingly sad and always profound, these stories showcase a writer with skill and empathy, and draw us in with a steady, unyielding grip.
