The SWG Mentorship Program is officially over. There are flowers and photos to prove it.
I am on the left. My mentor, Glen Sorestad is next to me. This program allowed me to benefit from Glen's writing advice for the past four months. It was fantastic. Glen is a former Saskatchewan Poet Laureate, a poet and short story writer who has published and edited too many works to count. This was a great program! It ended with a reading in Regina on April 26.
I have borrowed (stolen?) this photo from Ed Willet's Facebook page. Ed Willet is Saskatchewan's premiere science fiction writer (the tallest one in the group). He was one of the mentors, and his wife took this photo. Read all about his books here: http://edwardwillett.com.
In other news: The show in Montmartre (Homecoming) was great, despite the last-minute replacement of the leading lady. When she had a heart attack the day before the show, the woman playing a slightly smaller role stepped into the lead, and someone off the street (who had never read the play) came on stage, book in hand. They did a great job!
If you live near Lucknow, Ontario, you can see Homecoming from April 27 to May 6. Read all about it: http://www.kincardinenews.com/2017/04/26/lucknow-hawk-theatres-homecoming-hits-close-to-home.

With a slower Grainews schedule over the summer, I hope to finish a draft of a novel. I'll post some of it here.
