In Calgary? Let’s Get Lit this weekend

I’m part of the Alexandra Writers’ Centre Society’s Get Lit mini-writer con this weekend. If you’re in Calgary, check it out!

What’s it about?

How does one go from writer to published author? In this full-day mini conference, we will look at the writer’s life from idea to publication and how to get your work noticed. Whether you plan to go the traditional route, or self-publish, the journey is mostly the same. From the first word, to engaging your community of peers for support and encouragement, to staying on track and dealing with rejection in all forms, resilience will get you to the finish line. 


I’m part of this panel:

On Publishing – Traditional vs Small Press vs Self-Publish 
Bradley Somer | Jodi McIsaac | Kelly Kaur | M. Jane Colette
Join all our presenters for an open discussion on all things publishing. Learn tips and tricks from the front lines and decide which route is the best for you.

And I’m giving a special, short version of the Organized Creative workshop — especially for pantsters and procrastinators.

See you there?
