More News From our Winners Plus a New Country!
Here's an update on recent writing-related events in my life:
I had a reading today at Kwantlen University College for the "Celebrating our Students' Learning" event. The excerpt I chose was from "Remembrance: A Family Love Story," which chronicles the fateful meeting of my great-grandparents. Thomas Craven, 41, a wealthy priest with four degrees met Bridget McGrane, a sweet Irish lass, 19, poor and illiterate. They fell in love, changed their names and emigrated to Canada to escape the scandal their union stirred.
This was my first reading, making me extremely nervous. Being published in Writers of the Future definitely helped my confidence level. In fact, having a professional publication under my belt has been a boost in all areas of my writing.
I've also been invited to the Writers' Union of Canada AGM, which includes Margaret Atwood giving the Margaret Laurence talk on the Writers' Life. I'm honoured to be a student representative for Kwantlen. These conferences are always wonderful inspiration to shift into the writing gear.
