Initiated in spring 2020 in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, Blue Metropolis’ Writing for the Outdoors online platform took us through to the spring 2021 edition of the Festival, when we presented an outdoors series of literary events so as to take advantage of Greater Montreal’s beautiful parks and natural settings.
