June is almost here. What does this mean? Well, it means that May will soon be over so you should hurry up and VOTE for your Alberta Readers’ Choice Award book and author. Thank you to everyone who joined us for the special Writers’ Corner event with Todd Babiak, Michael Hingston, Thersea Shea, and Diana Davidson. It was a fantastic afternoon of great insights into the writing process.
June also means that June 2nd is the deadline to submit a story, poem, or essay to volume 2 of the 40 Below Project. If you have a piece that is about or inspired by winter in Alberta then you should send something in. Send it right HERE.
June 11th is my seminar on self-publishing entitled The Self-Publishing Odyssey: Opportunities for Success and Heartbreak for the Self-Published Writer. In this talk I will take you all through my experiences with self-publishing. Tips, tricks, funny stories, sad stories, and all the different options that exist now for people interested in self-publishing. Please come to this. It is free to attend but you should register online here.
Finally, on June 29th I am excited to announce that the guest for Writers’ Corner will be former EPL Writer-in-Residence Chris Craddock. Chris Craddock is a champion of all things creative. He’s an actor/director/producer and he’s written for plays, television, film, you name it. A collection of his plays has just been published by NeWest entitled “Public Speaking and Other Plays”. Join us at the Strathcona Branch on June 29th at 1:30pm to hear Chris regale us with stories about being a success in EVERY SINGLE MEDIUM THAT EXISTS. Chris is great. Please come.
And then June will be over.
