Talks begin at 12:15 p.m. and end at 12:45 p.m., and you have two options to participate. You can attend in person at the Regina office (Suite 100, 1150-8th Avenue). *NEW: You may also visit the Saskatoon office and enjoy the livestream with others. Or if you prefer, you can participate from your home, office or favourite Wi-Fi spot as long as you have access to high speed Internet.* (See below for instructions)

The SWG is pleased to announce that we are now able to broadcast our sessions around the province and beyond using a live streaming video platform. We’ve chosen Livestream as our delivery system.

If attending in person, bring a bagged lunch and listen to some of your favourite authors talk about the craft of writing. We’ll provide coffee, tea, and water. Write After Lunch is a public event open to everyone and there is no need to register.


December 2: "Igniting Our Stories"

Speaker: Margaret Sweatman

This talk will be about our ideas for stories, the ones we haven't yet written, and will elaborate on several ways in which they can be structured for very different effects. Margaret will be discussing the differing effects of structure and narrative technique, of voice, and a story's relationship with time.
