Ottawa's Festival of Ideas Since 1997

I am Lucy Maud Montgomery

I am an author
I wonder if I will make friends

I hear my pencil on my paper

I see my published book
I want to be a teacher
I am an author

 

I pretend I am Anne
I feel happy that I wrote a book
I touch my published book
I worry nobody will like my books

I cry because my parents are dead

I am an author

 

I understand if no one likes my books
I say “I can’t remember the time I was not writing.”

I dream Anne will come alive
I try to write more books
I hope my parents would have been proud of me
I am an author
