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
