Join us Wednesday, October 12th at 1pm for Wise Words - Forming a writing group, with Gillian Turnbull.  This session is part of our Wise Words Program.  A unique writing and communication initiative for Seniors in all corners of our lovely province.  This program is Funded by the Government of Canada's New Horizons for Seniors Program.

A writing group offers a social and professional outlet for writers who are seeking connection with fellow practitioners. It can also play a vital role in developing your craft as others get to know and critique your work. This session will introduce the mechanics of forming, and maintaining, a writer’s group. We’ll look at how to gather a group together, explore a variety of formats, and talk about keeping one going at a distance while building your individual writing and editing skills.

Gillian Turnbull holds an MFA in Creative Nonfiction from the University of King’s College, where she now teaches as a mentor in the program. She is the author of Sonic Booms: Making Music in an Oil Town. Her writing group, Penizen, is working on an anthology on the creative process titled Bad Artist
