The Writing Life, etc.

Had a great time at Brian Brennan’s launch last week — it was a very warm and musical evening. Also had a great time at Naomi Lewis’ launch of her residency at Calgary Public Library. She’ll be doing programs and manuscript consultations at Memorial Park Library for the next three months — check the information on CPL’s Writer-in-Residence page if you’re interested in consulting with her.

Just putting the finishing touches on the presentation I’m doing tomorrow night. That’s The Writing Life at Shelf Life Books, 1302 – 4 St. SW. We’re starting at 7, there’ll be a Q & A session after my talk and then we’re retiring to the Rose & Crown for a beverage later. Looking forward to it!

Also looking forward to the Freshwater Pearls anthology launch, 7 PM, Wed., Sept.21 at the Alexandra Centre. It’ll also be a 30th anniversary bash for the Alexandra Writers Centre Society, so it should be quite a party.

Finally, tonight’s my first creative writing class for continuing ed at Mount Royal University. I’m very much looking forward to teaching at MRU. And I’m sure it will be fun.

Over and out for now.
