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.
