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.
Past Write After Lunch talks can be viewed on our Facebook Page.
When: Tuesday, May 14, 2019, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. Where: The Ken Mitchell Library, SWG Offices, 100-1150 8th Ave (Wheelchair accessible)
Love and Hate and Writers’ Awards
with Dianne Warren
Dianne Warren will share her experience and opinions on awards and their tangle of affects on a writer’s work and the literary landscape.
Dianne Warren is a fiction writer who lives in Regina. She has published three collections of short fiction and two novels. She has won awards such as the Writers' Trust Marian Engel Award, Saskatchewan Book of the Year (for Bad Luck Dog), the 2010 Governor’s General’s Award for Fiction (for Cool Water), and the Cheryl and Henry Kloppenburg Award. The New York Times said of Liberty Street (2016): “Suffused with details of small-town life and feelings of regret, Dianne Warren’s new novel has the seductive melancholy of a country song being played on a long drive home.” She is currently on the faculty of the Humber College distance creative writing program, and in the process of editing a new novel.
