Catch Tomorrow’s Stars Today – May 7
That tag line may have been used first by major junior hockey, but it happens to apply to an event coming up in Halifax on Saturday, May 7. In this case, the stars are writers who are just starting out — finding their voices and honing their craft.
Beginning at 1 pm on May 7, down at the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia space (1113 Marginal Road — close to both Pier 21 and the Farmers’ Market) the winners of the 2016 Atlantic Writing Competition and emerging writers who have taken part in the Alistair MacLeod Mentorship Program will all be giving short readings, excerpts from their recent work.
Come for the fun and inspiration.
I am especially pleased that Linda MacLean, who I came to know over the span of five months in the mentorship program, will be reading twice. That’s because she won creative non-fiction category in the writing competition as well as completed the first draft of a novel in the mentorship program.
