Is there an award for worst blog updater?
Some writing news:
1. See Homecoming in Montemarte on April 20, 21, or 22! Call Yvonne at 306-424-2085 for tickets ($30). She can also tell you exactly where it is. I'll be there on Thursday.
2. I'm in the Sask. Writers guild Mentorship program! Public readings in Regina, on April 26. 7:00 at the Wascana Centre (2900 Wascana Drive). See all the info: http://www.skwriter.com/about-the-swg/calendar/2017/04/26
3. Homecoming is on it's way to Alberta! Look for more information about a show in Leduc next winter.
4. Hanson Acres is still running in Country Guide! (Just in case you don't have your subscription yet.) Read the latest on the Hanson family... this time? Making the crop plan. Not as easy as you think when everybody wants to get involved. Find it here: https://www.country-guide.ca/2017/03/31/hanson-acres-all-down-the-generations/50837/
5. (Until June), I'm a member of the Public Lending Rights Commission (PLR is the federal program that pays writers to recognize the fact that our work is in libraries). Until this provincial budget, I have proudly attended meetings, knowing that Saskatchewan has the best interlibrary loan system in the country, with a fantastic catalogue. In the wake of the 2017 provincial budget, I'm slinking down in my seat at the national meetings, embarrassed for my province. The cuts to the SILS (Sask Interlibrary Loan System) are beyond ridiculous and must be stopped.
Thanks for visiting!
