Upcoming Writing Events- Add Yours for your Location…


events

Writing took a backseat this weekend as I helped my daughter move into her new apartment – exhausting but fun, emotional but proud as any mother would be. It is a big step for her and me and now I have an empty nest. There will be a transition and adjustment in the months to come.

My next ‘writing’ event is tomorrow evening when I will be attending at 7 pm-First Five Pages & Avoiding a Saggy Middle in your Novel – this is hosted by Jennifer Snow (http://www.jennifersnowauthor.com/writer-in-residence) who is resident writer in a local bookstore, Audrey’s in Edmonton. I’m looking forward to the evening and learning new concepts.

HIGH LEVEL LIT: SALON SERIES #2
MAY 31, 2017 AT 6PM
MERCURY ROOM (10575 114 St. Edmonton)

In collaboration with Eighteen Bridges Magazine and LitFest Alberta, Edmonton Community Foundation (ECF) presents a Salon Series to highlight the contributors of High Level Lit: Musings on YEG for Canada’s Sesquicentennial.

We’ve chosen 12 writers with a connection to Edmonton to reflect on our city in light of Canada’s 150th and will be featuring these literary heavyweights throughout the year in the High Level Lit Salon Series. In Salon #2, audiences will hear from former Poet Laureate Anna Marie Sewell, LGBT historian and playwright Darrin Hagen, and culinary-culture maven Jennifer Cockrall-King. Hosted by Minister Faust, this is sure to be one of Edmonton’s literary highlights of the year!

This High Level Lit Salon is FREE to attend, but seating is limited and guests must RSVP via Eventbrite here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/high-level-lit-salon-2-tickets…

Seating will be provided on a first-come basis. Doors open at 5PM, presentations begin at 6PM. Following the presentation, guests are invited to stay for hors d’ouvres and mingling with folks from ECF, LitFest, and the YEG literati!

In October the collection of essays and poetry will be printed as a special anthology in Eighteen Bridges Magazine and launched during LitFest, Canada’s only non-fiction literary festival. Stay tuned for more information on the High Level Lit Series salons throughout 2017.
