We are now oh so very close to Writers' Weekend 2014, our day-long celebration of all the local writer resources that can possibly be stacked into six hours. At this point of final preparation there isn't much else we can say about how wonderful and inspiring our expert presentations + Resource Fair will be, except that we can't wait to get started. And speaking of getting started, we do want to remind everyone coming out for the first presentation, Writing & Publishing Fantasy, at 10am, that the Central library's front doors do not open until 10am. With the Weather Network forecasting a high of -9, please don't wait outside for the library to open to access the John Dutton Theatre. Our theatre entrance on Macleod Trail, just a few steps down the block, will be open early so please come upstairs and settle in.
And if you aren't registered for Writing & Publishing Fantasy, our opening presentation from bestselling author Jodi McIsaac, you'll be missing out on tremendous insight into the craft of urban fantasy, as well as perspectives on new dynamics of publishing it.
And one more heads-up:
If you're like me and coffee is required prior to and during Jodi McIsaac's presentation, the coffee shop inside the Central library does not open until 10am either... so... yes, coffee en route. See you all Saturday!
