May is Mill Woods Month!

 

May is Mill Woods Month for me as Writer-in-Residence. I will be spending a lot of time at the Mill Woods branch of the EPL in May. It’s time to branch out. Get it? Branch. Out. Get it? Ok then…

On May 5th is my very first writing workshop for the EPL. Since it’s my first one I thought that we would get together and do some basic writing exercises designed to help you find the voice of whatever it is you’re working on, whether it be a short story or novel or anything in between. Please come with whatever it is you use to write. Pens, pencil, laptop, whatever. Come prepared to write and share some of it with the group.

Monday, May 5th. 7pm. Mill Woods Branch (2331 66st NW)

No sign-in required but space is limited to 15 human people.

Now I usually have office hours here in the Stanley Milner Branch. They are Tuesdays through Thursdays from 11-5pm. For a week in May I will be taking my office hours in the Mill Woods branch. So in case you’ve been putting off paying me a visit because it’s a little out of your way then May is the month to come see me. Dropping in is ok but it’s best if you email me (writerinresidence@epl.ca) and set up an appointment and you can even send a sample of your work along for me to read first so we can talk about it.

Come and pay me a visit on the south side of the river.

And Finally, My second writer’s workshop

Tuesday, May 27th. 7pm Mill Woods Branch

Think of this as phase two of the workshop I do earlier in the month. You can come to both or either one. We will be exploring similar techniques as the first workshop but this will be the perfect opportunity to see if your writing has improved over the course of the month.

Once again, please bring your writing instruments and come prepared to write and share your work with others and also provide some helpful feedback to others.

See you on the south side!
