Sorry for the late post I have been volunteering at another event today! The 3 Dimensions – Write, Edit, Publish – conference was amazing yesterday. It was certainly the total opposite of today’s word – Hebetude – definition: the state of being dull : lethargy.
I was assisting my publisher, Dream Write Publishing at their table in the marketplace on Saturday, where numerous other vendors were in attendance. Once we had set up the table we waited for the first influx of attendees – there were over 300 – to arrive and browse. With a constant supply of refreshments and snacks everyone was well catered for. After each session we would have another influx of interested people asking about Dream Write’s services and buying books, so we were kept busy answering questions and handing out information for Dream Write but also our writers group, The Writers Foundation of Strathcona County. It was a great interactive day with excellent networking opportunities for everyone that attended.
In all there were 24 separate sessions from Friday evening through to Sunday afternoon. Linda and I attended the Friday evening wine and cheese reception and then enjoyed the keynote presenter, Alistair MacLeod in conversation with Shelagh Rogers. She is host of the CBC’s The Next Chapter and the interview was recorded for a future programme.
