This month the Artist Formerly Known as the Literary Gathering hits the
pavement (or at least the Skytrain) and shares the luv with New
Westminsterians of all descriptions at the funky new Heritage Grill on
Columbia Street. Join all the usual suspects plus Rusty Nixon for a
screening of his documentary Scribes featuring Diana Gabaldon, Jack Whyte,
Terry Brooks, Michael Slade, Anne Perry and a collection of the best writing
teachers, agents and writers ever to hit the Great White North. Bonus
appearance by top New York literary agent and filmmaker's muse Donald Maas.
Rusty will be on hand to answer questions about the film and yours truly
will be on hand in my alter ego as a Director of the SIWC to answer
questions about the Conference, the largest public event in the City of
Surrey. Each year the SIWC brings together writers, publishers, agents and
editors from all over the world for an intensive three-day immersion in the
world of words.
Coming October 19: Artist's books and visual tomes, featuring Ann Vincente
November 16: Videopoetics
December 21: Holidays, you fool! So take some time off!
