2016 WWC Guest of Honour Speech

Dr. Robert Runté speaking at When Words Collide.

The When Words Collide writers' conference (held each August in Calgary) has a podcast page on which they release Guest of Honour speeches, panel discussions, and interviews. These are generally well worth a listen.

My Guest of Honour speech August 2016 was just released: "WWC 2016 GOH speech finds the curmudgeonly, retired professor Robert Runté questioning English teachers and praising fan fiction".

  1. Adding an example of popular fan fiction, The World ain't Ready by ideopathicsmile is popular. The characters are from Victor Hugo's Les Misérables but re-set in a high school in the modern era with gay and transgender rights as a subtheme.
