Tonia Evans Cianciulli and Carolyn R Parsons

Must writing be a solo endeavour? In this episode, author and concert artist Tonia Evans Cianciulli talks about co-writing with her grandfather, and persisting as an artist during a global pandemic. She discusses the mechanics of co-writing, the artist’s anxiety, learning positivity, and staying motivated in isolation. In addition to her award-winning work on page and stage, Tonia is the founder of Wish Arts, a non-profit organization dedicated to nurturing and empowering Canadian artists in all mediums.

Our host is author and journalist Carolyn R. Parsons, Central/Burin Representative for the Writers’ Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador.
