Shaena Lambert’s writing workshop

My friend the wonderful writer Shaena Lambert is teaching a writing workshop in B.C. this summer, in a stunning spot – the Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts. Shaena is a writer of extraordinary depth and feeling; her new collection “Oh My Darling” has won a prize and universal praise.

Shaena assures me that what’s taught will be as relevant for memoir and non-fiction as for short fiction. So if you want to combine heavenly landscape and profoundly meaningful work, here’s your chance.
