If the longer days and mild temperatures have given you itchy fingers for the written word, consider taking this one-day writing workshop with Heather Jessup. Activities will include writing prompts and exercises. Writers at all levels and working in all genres are encouraged to participate. Get your pen flowing in time for the warmer temperatures, sunnier skies and full pages of summer.
Heather Jessup was nominated for the Thomas Head Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award for her debut novel, The Lightning Field. Recently, she has been teaching creative writing at Dalhousie University and working avidly on her doctoral dissertation on contemporary Canadian literature and visual art. Her poetry, fiction, and reviews have been published in journals across Canada and the United States. She will be relocating to the West Coast this summer.
Thank you, Heather!
Heather is generously donating her time and expertise to WFNS for this workshop and has asked that the proceeds benefit the Fed's programs and services.
You folks have been incredible to me in my seven years in the province, and I actually can't imagine my time in Halifax without having been introduced to the Federation as a form of support, community, and as a way of knowing what is happening in the writing-world of my city. In return for the hospitality and support the Fed has given me, I'd love to try to offer a bit of fundraising back to the organization before I go.
We are pleased to announce that the cost for this workshop for participants will be by donation. Pay whatever you can to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity.
