Coming up on Saturday, May 26 is my one-day workshop at the Alexandra Writers Centre, Life Into Story. Here’s the description:
Got a great story idea inspired by real life events but not sure how or where or why to begin writing it? In this workshop we’ll explore characters, plots and settings derived from real life. We’ll also consider how closely fiction should resemble real life, and whether some ideas are better suited to fiction or creative nonfiction.
Sounds great, eh? Contact AWCS for more information.
Tomorrow night at 7 PM I’m attending the Writers Guild of Alberta Literary Awards Shortlist Readings at The Rose & Crown pub on 4th St SW. Looking forward to sharing the excitement!
And then on Thursday I’m going to the launch of Brian Brennan’s new book, The Calgary Public Library: Inspiring Life Stories Since 1912. As a former long-time CPL employee, I’m looking forward to reading the book.
