Launch + Celebration

Every spring, New Shoots holds a public reading featuring the students featured in our annual anthology, reading alongside professional and award-winning writers. This launch celebrates the hard work of all the teachers, mentors, and students who made New Shoots a success.

False Creek Community Centre’s Tyee Hall hosted the 2017 Anthology Launch, where more than 20 students performed their work to an audience of 60 guests. UBC professors Kevin Chong and Emily Pohl-Weary, and poet Selina Boan (who was also a mentor at King George Secondary School) also read their work.
