Christmas Party

Hello fellow Writer’s Ink members:

This coming Tuesday (December 12th) is the Christmas party. It is a pot-luck kind of gathering.
Those so inclined will bring along some nibblies to share.

Also for those so interested a gift exchange of sorts will happen.
Either a gift type item (not to exceed $10 value) or a small (1 page or less) written piece.

And if your in the giving spirit… don’t forget its “pay your dues time of year”.

Change of Plans for Tuesday

As a number of our play-writes will not be present on Tuesday (due to changes in rehearsals etc) the decision
has been made to reschedule the play-write discussion/presentation until next learning Tuesday… Dec 5th.

INSTEAD… we will have the standard read and critique that we typically do on our regular meetings.
So… if you have something to read bring it or send it through… as per usual.
Once again… this Tuesday will be a regular read & critique meeting.

Canada Day Book Launch!


Writers’ Ink celebrates Canada’s Birthday with words.

On Canada Day, at Bower Pond, the Red Deer and District writers’ club, Writers’ Ink, will launch its 25th Anniversary Edition Anthology, titled Write On, Canada! 

This compilation is a celebration of Canada, from Newfoundland to Tofino, and points in between.  These stories and poems represent our memories of time and place.  Inside its cover you will read about how one member who, as a teenager, was tasked with the responsibility of taking care of a group of youngsters on their cross Canada trip to Expo ’67 to celebrate Canada’s 100th Birthday; a former teacher tells about his harrowing ride in his unreliable car in the middle of nowhere B.C. when he was a young man.  Reminisce with another writer when she describes what she misses about small town life, and let our talented poets take you on other journeys.  Some of our words will make you laugh; some may make you cry, but, to be sure, this anthology will engage your emotions and evoke your senses. 

Choosing to tell stories of Canada, as our theme for this 25th anniversary edition, the Writer’s Ink membership regards this anthology as something very special.  We are proud to offer it the public.  Share our pride with a family member, a friend, or buy it as a keepsake to remember this year, 2017, our country’s 150th Birthday.  Write on, Canada!  Come join us.

We wish to thank the City of Red Deer (Cultural Services) for their generous financial contribution which helped ensure that everything about this book, including the printing, is Canadian.

This limited edition Anthology will be offered on Canada Day for the cost of $12.00.  For more information, contact Patricia at 403 550-0180.  We look forward to seeing you there!
