Just finished another rehearsal of my portion of the Writing Fiction program I'm presenting with my good friend and esteemed colleague Rona Altrows as part of Calgary Public Library's 2011 Writers' Weekend event, coming up on Saturday, February 5th. It's a whole day of programs on writing and publishing, presented by some fine Calgary writers and other members of the city's literary community. Rona and I are on from 11 AM - 12 PM, but the presentations start at 10 and go until late afternoon. That all takes place in the Dutton Theatre, located on the second floor of the Central Library, 616 Macleod Tr. SE. If you're interested, have your library card ready and register here .
Another public event: I've been invited to read at the Auburn Saloon on the evening of Sunday, February 13th, as part of Storytellers, a fiction-based reading program. Though I've been to many events at the Auburn before, I've never read there myself, so I am looking forward to it. Things get started around 6:30 that night, and I'll post more details as they become available.
Finally, edits. Instead of that ol' novel I am slowly finishing, right now it's my pleasure to be working on edits to a short story that I've had accepted for a forthcoming anthology. Again, more details to follow, hopefully.
All for now. Over and out.
