The Lost Art of Listening with Shelagh Rogers
Hosted by Shelley Youngblut
Memorial Park Library, 2nd Floor
1221 2 St SW
Perhaps the greatest joy of a Wordfest event is being in the room when a writer feels comfortable enough to truly share: about their work, their life, their inner lives. How do you spark this level of intimacy in a public setting? How do you create an environment of mutual trust and generosity? What can we apply about being a good interviewer to our own interactions?
Well, to get to the heart of it, it’s far more about listening than it is about talking – and here’s a rare opportunity to listen to Shelagh Rogers as she shares what she’s gleaned over the years.
This event is part of Wordfest’s Imaginairium festival, Oct. 11-15, 2023. Connect with 50+ the world’s most arresting writers, thinkers, activators and inspirers, gathered just for you in Calgary, Canada. For more info: wordfest.com
