Did you ever wish you could have lunch with an author? The SWG has just the program for you! Join us at the SWG office on the first Tuesday of every month for these lunchtime craft talks.
These half-hour sessions begin at 12:15 p.m. You can attend in person or from the comfort of your home, office, or favourite Wi-Fi spot (as long as you have access to high speed Internet and a Facebook account).
If attending in person, bring a bagged lunch and listen to a Saskatchewan author talk about the craft of writing. We’ll provide coffee, tea, and water. Write After Lunch is a free public event open to everyone and there is no need to register.
*Please note: We have made a change to this program. In the past, Write After Lunch has been presented online, via Livestream. Instead, we will now be presenting the program online through Facebook Live.
For step by step instructions, please go here.

March 6: Martine Nöel-Maw - Writing for (and with!) Children
Martine Noël-Maw’s writing career includes a series of workshops in which 150 French and immersion students participated over the last decade. The goal: to create unique French-language stories set in Saskatchewan. The result: six youth novels, four of which have been shortlisted for a Saskatchewan Book Award. Martine will discuss the challenges of writing, publishing and promoting these homegrown stories. She will also share about the impact it has had on her writing practice, and on the francophone community in Saskatchewan and beyond.
Martine Noël-Maw is an author, translator, editor and publisher. A French literature graduate from the Université de Montréal, her work has earned her many honours, including two Saskatchewan Book Awards, and she was shortlisted for the Prix du récit Radio-Canada 2015 (French CBC Creative Nonfiction Award). She has presented her work in national and international events from Halifax to Vancouver, and in California and France.
