Celebrating the Launch of “Painted Voices”

The pandemic has impacted all our lives in a myriad of ways including how we celebrate our successes such as birthdays, graduations, and even book launches. We are planning a virtual launch in the coming weeks for Painted Voices and will post details when they become available. For now a small gathering with some of the participants and media was held this Saturday in the parking lot adjacent to the former St. Joseph Hospital site. Congrats to all those involved. Please see the link below to the Sudbury Star coverage of our launch.

News: Update on Hospital Mural Writing Project

The Sudbury Writers’ Guild would like to thank all those who submitted to our Hospital Mural Writing Project. The Guild  received a variety of prose and poetry texts from writers in the community. All submissions were reviewed by a blind panel and the results should be emailed to you in the coming days. From the chosen pieces the Sudbury Writers Guild will be producing a chapbook titled,  Painted Voices, in the coming months.

We sincerely thank all of you for your submissions and we encourage you to continue your interest and dedication to writing. Writing is one of the great achievements of our society and is a skill and activity that every person can develop and enjoy. We encourage you in the continuation of your writing career. 

Best Regards,

Tom Leduc, President, Sudbury Writers Guild
