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

Event

   I have been invited to speak about my memoir: Two Decades Of Diapers at MEMOIRABILIA – WRITER’S EXPO, taking place at Turner Park Library on March 24/15 at 7:00 pm. This is a great opportunity for me to encourage anyone who has considered writing their memoir. I will also be discussing my book and addressing the effects of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome on individuals and families.

The host of Writer’s Expo is Viga Boland, editor of a new magazine, titled: MEMOIRABILIA. Recently launched, it contains a rich diversity of memoir reviews, tips on writing memoir, memoirists’ interviews and much more. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet Viga, myself and two other memoirists at this event. So if you live in the area of Turner Park Library, 352, Rymal Road East, in Hamilton, Ontario and would like to attend. We will see you there on Tuesday, March 24th at 7:00.
