The Ottawa International Writers Festival has been playing host to dozens of writers and hundreds of readers since Apr 13. RM Vaughan, Steven Venright and Nathaniel G Moore took the state Apr 17.

Vaughan, a Globe and Mail columnist and former Xtra contributor, launched Troubled, a memoir in verse about his turbulent relationship with his former shrink.

Here, Vaughan introduces the book and reads from a series of poems called Session.
