Category: Sudbury Writers’ Guild Meeting
Fall is in the air and so is another season of the Sudbury Writers’ Guild. Our first meeting of the season will kick off Thursday September, 27th, 2018 at College Boreal in room M3340. We’ll open doors at 6pm and get underway by 6:30 pm.
September is a meeting where we typically renew our memberships, catch up on what has happened since we last met, and talk about plans for the new season. Tom and the executive have a lot of exciting ideas and want to hear from the rest of the membership for what you want to get out of the season.
The Guild is here to support your writing journey!
A couple of quick things to mention on the horizion – October 13th Brian Henry will be in town hosting a workshop on writing for Children and Young Adults. You can find out more on Brian’s blog here – http://quick-brown-fox-canada.blogspot.com/2018/05/writing-for-children-and-for-young.html
Also this year we are hosting our first ever Writers’ Guild Book Club. Details about the club and a poll to determine which book we will choose is here – http://sudburywritersguild.com/sudbury-writers-guild-book-club/

Thanks and look forward to seeing you out to a meeting this year. By the way, for new and prospective members, you are welcome to come out and attend a meeting before committing to becoming a member.
FYI the meeting room for the Jan 25th, 2018 Meeting has changed. We are now in M3360 which is just down the hall from our previous meeting room M3340 at College Boreal on the 3rd Floor.
We have sent out word to members via email this afternoon and have posted the info on our Facebook Page as well.
We apologize for the last minute notice, but we were only told of the change this afternoon by the College. M3360 will be the room we will use for the remainder of the semester.
The Sudbury Writers’ Guild would like to invite anyone interested in the Sudbury’s writing community to come out to our January meeting located at College Boreal in Room M3340.
At our next meeting on Thursday January 25th we have Jessica Watts Coordinator of Outreach, Programs, and Partnerships from the Greater Sudbury Public Library coming to speak to us on all the library has to offer. It’s not just books and rolodexes any more. Jessica is involved with all the library has to offer including book clubs, and audio books apps. She is also involved in almost every reading and writing committee in town.
We also have Heather Campbell and Laura Stradiotto, coming in to speak to us about Latitude 46 Publishing, and Sudbury’s annual literary festival Wordstock. We will be discussing all that Latitude 46 and Wordstock has accomplished, were the festival is headed, and what we can do to help with their and our continued success.
Denise Truax, General Director and editor at Prise de parole. A French Canadian publishing company located in Greater Sudbury, will also be joining us to speak on all they have accomplished, what we can learn from them and how we can work together to make Sudbury a thriving literary community.
So please come out and join us because without you there is no literary community.
Be safe and keep writing,
