    You Made Our Day

    by Phil - 1 Comment(s)

    As we wind down from the months of preparation put into Writer's Weekend, we are already looking forward to the 2013 installment of our day dedicated entirely to Calgary's writers. We need your feedback! If you were one of the hundreds who joined us on February 4th please let us know what you loved about the programming, or what was missing, so that we can bring you an even better experience next year.

    Please leave a comment below, or even better, come visit us at any branch of the library. While we can only offer such an onslaught of information once a year, remember that your local library is the best resource for writers 365 days a year. Not only do we have all the information writers could ask for in terms of research, but libraries are also a great place to get some writing done.

    Just in case you weren't able to attend all of our Writer's Weekend programs, here again is our list of partners and presenters, linked to more valuable information they provide.

    Excellent day for writers! All of the speakers were impressive, the info was highly useful and I went away fired up to get back to my keyboard. Thank you to everyone involved!
