We’re nothing less than entirely chuffed at the response to our 2018 Summer Writers Retreat: it’s now sold out!
But never fear: we’re keeping a waiting list. If you’d like a chance to snag a seat that may come available (Life happens, right?), contact Retreat Committee Chair Sandra Wong to put your name on the list.
In the meantime, if you’ll be in the Victoria area on August 17 and/or 18, mark your calendar for these two free events, held in conjunction with the retreat:
SINC-CW Retreat Meet & Greet
FRI AUG 17 7PM start
Swan’s Pub (506 Pandora Ave.)
SinC—Canada West has reserved space at Swan’s Pub for a casual, “no-host” social. Join us and meet retreat attendees; make new friends who have writerly interests in common; and enjoy an evening of book talk and lively spirits.
Crime Fiction Panel Discussion
SAT AUG 18 7PM to 9PM
Bolen Books (#111 – 1644 Hillside Ave.)
Victoria’s famed Bolen Books is hosting New York Times-bestselling author Laurie R. King on a panel alongside Canada West author-members, Marcelle Dubé, Liz Freeland, and Janice MacDonald. Moderated by chapter Past President S.G. Wong, “Author Alchemy: Spinning Facts into Fiction Gold” is sure to be an engaging look into how authors turn reams of research into compelling narratives. Join us for learning, laughter, and some great crime fiction writers!
