Canadian Authors Association Residency; Calgary Public Library Literary Awards

This has been one of those newsy weeks. So last night I was offered (and was very happy to accept) the position of Calgary writer-in-residence for The Canadian Authors Association. This is the first time the program has been run in Calgary and if it works out well will hopefully become an annual thing. Right now I’m working on finding a location for doing manuscript consultations in (have a few possibilities up my sleeve). The program will run mid-September to mid-December and mid-January to mid-April. I’ll post details later on where you can send a manuscript. Very exciting! Here’s some info about the program:

And this morning I got word that Love Minus Zero is a semi-finalist in the first annual Calgary Public Library Foundation Literary Awards in the adult fiction category. Finalists will be announced the week of September 7th. Details on the award can be found here:

Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Hmm. Looks like I’m going to be kind of busy this fall.
