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 luncheon craft talks.
These half hour talks begin at 12:15 p.m. and you can attend in person at the SWG office, or from your home, office or favourite Wi-Fi spot as long as you have access to high speed Internet and a free Livestream account. Livestream sign-up 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.
