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.

Writing on the Internet
What is the digital poetic? Through the work of Internet-era poets, we’ll examine the ever-changing relationship between the virtual and physical worlds. Poetry is a technology of the invisible, and so is the perfect tool to crack open the question “where does my mind end and the Internet begin?”
