Well done to the organizers of the second Wordstock literary festival in Sudbury, Ontario. It was an exciting event with workshops, panel discussions, speakers and book signings. The best part of it for me though was the immersion into all things author-ish. Getting together with other writers to hear how they are progressing with their latest project, telling them about my own work in progress, encouraging and being encouraged and of course, celebrating my shortlist for the kobo Emerging Writer Prize – all those conversations serve to inspire and recharge the battery. I appreciate my writer friends and that made the long drive worth it!
Speaking of driving, if you happen to be in Peterborough, ON this Friday, June 26 between 4 pm and 8 pm, please join me at Chapters where I will be signing books and chatting with fans. I’d love to see you!
