International Authors Get Excited About Ottawa Book Expo


International authors are beyond thrilled at the prospect of bringing in diverse choices for Canada’s local literary culture. Among local authors, foreign authors will be swarming in to deliver three days of uninhibited literary celebration.

It’s no secret that the local literary community is abuzz with excitement for the Ottawa Book Expo’s return this 2020. International authors who have applied to be vendors at the expo are also reciprocating the enthusiasm.

The Ottawa Book Expo is bringing in a cavalry of internationally acclaimed authors to diversify the already vast pool of literary works further. The local literary community of Canada has shown its excitement and support for the grassroots-oriented event.

The presence of international authors can only be seen as a beneficial addition to the expo. The benefit of which extends not only to the local literary community but to local authors as well.

Local bookworms will have the opportunity to peruse titles not ordinarily accessible to them. The addition of international authors and titles will bring to light multiple written works with different cultural backgrounds.

In addition to making the titles more accessible to potential readers, local authors will also benefit from the exposure to international authors. One may find it hard to believe that the literary industry is dynamic. The constant change and evolution of the way books are written, published and absorbed will make it easy for any author to be left behind.

The constant changes are not just trends that come and go, but provide authors with an arsenal of helpful knowledge.

Ottawa Book Expo’s decision to include international authors will prove to be healthy for the entire Canadian literary community. It not only encourages reading, but it should also inspire aspiring authors to pursue their dreams on an international scale.

With the rapidly changing literary industry, it’s only sensible to gather as much information as possible. Seasoned international authors would have a lasting impact on the literary community by sharing their experiences and talking about recent advancements in the literary industry.

However, the benefits are not purely one-sided. International authors will also learn secrets known only to Canadian authors and will allow them to reach a market they perhaps haven’t tapped before.

While the local literary community is undoubtedly excited with the addition of international authors, it is safe to say that the authors themselves are ecstatic as well. The Expo is providing international authors with the opportunity to send their message across a wide range of literary minds.

The presence of both local and international publishing companies and book worms only means that the international authors will be able to widen their reach further. Consequently, both global and local authors will gain a better foothold into the literary industry with the event. It is no secret that the literary industry thrives on connections. Unless you’re J.K. Rowling or George R.R. Martin, you’re definitely going to need all the advantages you can get.

The Expo is the perfect opportunity for authors to widen their network in the literary industry and make friends. Solidifying connections ultimately guarantees that you will have a reliable team to support your books.

In addition to this, it is only favourable to have multiple contacts in different publishing companies. This only ensures that your work is recognized on a larger scale and that you will be able to have choices when publishing your work.

The Ottawa Book Expo is coming back on June 2020 and July 2020 alongside the Great Canadian Barbecue and ensures a whole day filled with literary satisfaction. It is the ultimate literary event of the year and is guaranteed to be the perfect way to unplug.

In addition to the literary feast, you will have the opportunity to enjoy a literal feast thanks to the Ottawa Book Expo’s collaboration with Smoque Shack. Spend the day (or days) surrounded by books and a smorgasbord of all-time Canadian culinary favourites. 

What are you waiting for? Grab your tickets and grab them fast! Tickets are already flying, and the early bird rate will soon be gone. If you haven’t considered attending the Expo before, you definitely should now. The presence of local and international literary genius is one that will surely have your inner bookworm dancing with excitement.
