updates and events

I am part of a panel, organised by the Professional Writers Association of Canada (PWAC) and Ryerson, which will be held on Tuesday October 14 at the World’s Biggest Bookstore.  It’s called “Telling Individual Tales: How to craft compelling memoirs and personal essays,” and will feature also Sarah Moore, a very fine editor at “More” magazine, and an editor from CBC speaking about essays for radio.  It starts at 6.30 with Registration and then the event is from 7 to about 9 with “networking and light refreshments” afterwards.  For non-PWAC members the cost is $10.  

PWAC is running a whole series of seminars through the winter which might be of interest – on breaking into the business, financial management, “the new media landscape” etc.  A full calendar will be available at the seminar.
There is still room in my own “Write in the Garden” creativity kick-start workshop this coming Sunday.  Listen to your powerful hidden voice and experience “Magic in the City” for yourself.
Next Saturday is Nuit Blanche, an entire night given over to the arts throughout the city, so – old folks – let’s get some caffeine into our systems and try to stay up till the wee hours.  Or at least till midnight, if we possibly can, and see what’s going on out there.  
And the International Festival of Authors is coming up in October, tickets selling already – a delicious event featuring the best writers in the world, here in Toronto to talk to YOU.  This is why we Canadians don’t notice winter on the way – because there’s so much to do in the fall.
