Yesterday morning Kateri Akiwenzie-Damm led a workshop in writing with courage, giving the participants tools to deal with a story that stops you cold. In the afternoon, Shane Belcourt led a lively workshop on screenwriting. I attended both, and I’m glad I did!
The evening at the Oddfellows’ Hall also went well. The Rebekahs put on their usual lavish buffet of finger foods; no need to eat supper before turning up to this show!
Kateri read both with Shane’s musical accompaniment, and also unaccompanied. Judging from the enthusiastic applause, the evening was a hit. At one point Kateri looked out at the audience and said, “This is fun!” We like to hear that!
Pictures will be coming soon.
