Write After Lunch: SWG Talk Series

Did you ever wish you could lunch with an author? Dine on words? The SWG has just the program for you! Join us at noon on the first Tuesday of every month for our new luncheon craft talks.

Talks begin at 12:15 pm and end at 12:45 pm, and you have two options to participate. You can attend in person at the Ken Mitchell Library (Suite 100, 1150-8th Avenue). 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. This is a free service, but you do need to Login with your email and a password to access content. Instructions can be found at the bottom of this page.

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.
