Busy Summer in the Valley!

I’ve had a lot of time in the Qu’Appelle Valley this summer and it’s been great!  Not only did I stay at our family cottage at Lumsden Beach for all of June and a week in August, I also stayed at a friend’s cottage in Regina Beach for about ten days.  Immediately following that I had ten glorious days at the Sage Hill Writing Experience where I worked with Ken Babstock and five other poets — Dawn, Kathleen, Kevin, Kim and Margaret — to hone my new manuscript of poetry.  I feel great about the work and the new friendships that developed with my classmates and while there.

Now I’m back at the Last Mountain Lake Cultural Centre, commuting at present, for a few hours a week, to market the book project that is a legacy of my term as the inaugural literary artist-in-residence.  On Monday, we received the shipment of A GIFT OF THE PRAIRIE: Writings from the Southern Shores of Last Mountain Lake, which now has its own blog and Facebook page. Please follow us there!
