Is Writing On Your Mind?

Stop thinking about it, and start writing!

Do you live in the Hamilton/Wentworth area? Is writing on your mind, or is it your passion, or simply something you would like to try? Come out to Turner Park Library’s Live Writing Workshop, hosted by Viga Boland, author of No Tears For My Father. Discover the poet, memoir-ist, blogger, or fiction-writer in YOU.

Is Writing On Your Mind?

This workshop is for all writers of all genres but, if you, like me, are caregiver to a child with FASD, then I know you have a lot to say. So, come to the session and write it out. It won’t hurt, and might even help. If you have not written anything before, then this is a great place to begin. It you write every day then you will have a lot to share. Either way, the session will offer interest and diversity.

I hope to see you there!

Where:  Turner Park Library, 352 Rymal Road East, Hamilton , ON L9B 1C2

When: Mondays, April 18th & April 25th

Time: 1:00 – 3:00 pm

Host: Viga Boland

Childhood Incest

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Viga Boland, author of No Tears For My Father. She is a survivor of incest and, in her book, writes about her experiences with this terrible crime. I realize this subject is of a sensitive nature, but if you would like to read how this evil oppression can destroy the minds of children, please go to the top menu bar of my website and hover over Expert Views, reading down the list until you find Viga Boland, Incest Survivor or visit her website at http://www.vigaboland.com.
