A new year for Stories in the North

We’re excited to announce our events and guest authors for 2012!

We’re planning another Open Mike event, with our usual cash prizes, date to be announced. For all of you looking for literary gifts as well as the thrill of bidding, we’ll be having our regular Silent Auction.

New this year, a writing competition. Although the details have yet to be worked out, we’re planning to have an adult and a youth competition, with cash prizes in both categories. The contest will be open to writers across Algoma. Watch for more details!

We also have not one, but two authors lined up for this year!

In May local writer Elizabeth Creith will be launching her humourous memoir “Shepherd in Residence”. She’ll also be teaching two workshops. The morning workshop, “Make ‘Em Laugh”, will be about how to write humour. In the afternoon Elizabeth’s alter-ego, the Writer’s Dominatrix, will give technical instruction on grammar, punctuation and diction.

In October Jamie Zeppa, author of “Beyond the Sky and the Earth” and “Every Time We Say Goodbye” will be here to read. The subject of her workshop has not yet been decided.

More details on all these events to follow!
