Monique Polak guides participants at her workshop through a creative writing project.

Twenty-one articulate and creative writers crowded College Hall at the Morrin Centre on Nov. 10 for award-winning author Monique Polak’s bilingual writers’ workshop, The Bilingual Mind / L’esprit bilingue. A wide array of linguistic backgrounds was represented – French and English, of course, but speakers of Spanish, Farsi and sign language were also present.
