Program a success; AWCS events; Last call

So last week’s Canadian Authors Association and Calgary Public Library spring writing program with my friend  and colleague Rona Altrows went over quite well. We were pleased with the response and I think the participants were quite happy with the presentations. And they were the first events put on in Calgary by Canadian Authors Association in over thirty years, how about that?

I will be reading at the Alexandra Writers Centre Society spring instructor reading and registration night at 7:30 on Friday, April 9th and again the following Friday, April 16th, 7:00, at the Alexandra Writers Shining Stars event. Both events take place in the Rose Room, main level, 922 – 9 Ave. SE. And speaking of AWCS, their spring course schedule is now up, including my weekend intensive workshop, Life Into Story, which goes May 28 – 30.

And, last call. Once again, March 31 is my submission deadline for manuscripts if you’d like to have a free writer-in-residence consultation with me (details on the right-hand side of this page). I encourage you to send your submissions now, since slots are filling up, my hours are limited, and it’s possible I may have to start turning people away before the end of the month.

In other news, March 31 is my submission deadline for manuscripts if you’d like to have a free writer-in-residence consultation with me. If you do have something, I encourage you to send it now, since slots are filling up and my hours are limited. Don’t want to have to turn anyone away!
