Going home!

I was a teenager, living on a farm in rural Saskatchewan, when I first had the urge to be a writer.  That was a long time ago.  The dream never faded.  And here I am, a much better writer now, and I’m going back home!  On October 17, I’m heading to my hometown, Earl Grey SK, to deliver a day-long workshop on writing.

Earl Grey posterWhat’s in a Lifetime? will be an opportunity to explore your life story. What would you like to say about yourself? What are you afraid to say?  Are there tales from your past you’d like to tell?  Is there something you’d like to leave behind for future generations?

I’ll share writing exercises and memories, joys and sorrows, as well as tricks and techniques for getting started, keeping going, and knowing when to stop.

No previous publication or professional writing experience required. Bring your favourite pen, a sense of humour, and a bagged lunch. For more information or to register, please contact Anne Pennylegion at 306|939|4442 or by email at an.penny[at]sasktel.net.

This is a free workshop with funding provided by the Saskatchewan Writers Guild, the Canada Council for the Arts and Sask Culture with support from Sask Lotteries.
