Rona Altrows program; send me your stuff; Life Into Story again

Only about three weeks now until Canadian Authors Association and Calgary Public Library's spring writing program with Rona Altrows. Part I, The Self-Reliant Writer, is Tuesday, March 9th, 6 - 7:30 PM (free admission) and Part II, Getting Your Work Out There, is a full-day workshop on Saturday March 13th, 10:30 - 4:30; $40 for CAA members, $70 for nonmembers (lunch included). Both run at Memorial Park Library, lower level 1221 - 2 St. SW. To register, email

Busy still with manuscripts and writer meetings -- if you do want to send me something, send it now because my cut-off date is March 31, and if I find myself swamped with submissions then I may not get to read all of them. Details on the right hand side of this page.

The Alexandra Writers Centre has convinced me to expand Life Into Story, the one-day workshop I presented in the fall into a weekend intensive workshop, which will run Friday - Sunday, May 28 - 30th. Also with AWCS, I will be reading along with other instructors and members at their Alexandra Shining Stars event (like the sound of that!) on Friday, April 16th. I'll link to both these events as details become available.

All for now. Over and out.

Wow! You and Rona are up to some awesome stuff!

Lori Hahnel said...

Yeah, we're stupid busy. What you going to do?

Diane Girard said...

Busy indeed! I hope you get some good ms's to read.

And if Rona was offering those workshops here, I'd take 'em.
Great titles!

Yeah, I think folks are going to like what she's got to say.
