The Creative Nonfiction Collective Society (CNFC) is a Canadian organization for writers of creative (or literary or narrative) nonfiction. From May 2–4, the CNFC's 10th Anniversary Conference will be held right here in Calgary at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel. This is a unique and irresistable opportunity for writers of creative/literary/narrative nonfiction and Calgarians don't even have to travel to get to it! The $100 registration offer will end April 18th, so make sure to register before next Friday.
For complete details and registration go to CNFC Conference Page, where you can also find the full 2014 Program Outline. If the 3-day commitment is a bit much you can still get in on the action on Sunday, May 4, with a completely FREE event open to the public: "A Literary Walk with George Melnyk" from noon to 1:30 p.m. Not sure where this walk will take us but it will feature a smashing lineup of guest readers: Myrna Kostash, Fred Stenson, Chris Turner & Aritha van Herk.
The 2014 Keynote Speaker is acclaimed historian, novelist, essayist and award-winning author Ronald Wright. Find his books on the shelves of your local library:
