This event will take place in the new custom-made Gather that functions as a virtual home and event space for Playwrights Canada Press! You'll be able to explore the space, chat with other attendees and authors, and feel as if you're at an in-person gathering while being at home. Please note the links and instructions for attending the event will be sent out to registrants via email the day of the event. Gather is a web-browser based virtual platform that combines video-calling with a 2D map that you explore as an Avatar, meet others, and start your own conversations. When you get close to someone else in the space, your video and audio will connect and you can say hello. All you need to join our space and interact with others is a web browser, mic, and camera. (Though having your camera and mic on is not required.) Please note that Gather works best on a desktop using Chrome or Firefox and we recommend using headphones
