gatheringswebOriginally conceived in 1989 by the En’owkin Center in Pentincton, BC, the Gatherings journal of writing features students from the En’owkin International School of Writing as well as other Indigenous writers. Following a decade without the once annual journal, Theytus Books has published Gatherings XV: Water Anthology, a collection of works by Indigenous youth exploring the qualities and importance of water to youth, their families, and their communities. The journal will be launched with a series of four readings from 6:30 – 8:30pm on December 7, 2016 at the Okanagan Heritage Museum during Water Poetics of the Landscape: A Workshop.
