I was just looking at the details for a writers workshop in your area (vaguely) ... my pal Maddie is going to be teaching & she's great. I'd be happy to go and do the playwriting with Daniel MacIvor - love his work.

The 2008 Great Blue Heron Writing Workshop (July 1-5) at St. Francis Xavier University invites mid-level writers to engage in small-group sessions in one of four categories: fiction, playwriting, poetry, or magazine writing and creative non-fiction. This workshop offers a supportive atmosphere in which participants learn from established writers.

Daniel MacIvor - Playwriting

Bob Bancroft - Magazine Writing & Creative Non-Fiction

Anne Compton - Poetry

Michael Crummey - Fiction

Madeleine Thien - Fiction


I'm going to check out her work. Thank you!


She's terrific, Kate. I'm glad you're going to check her out.

And Sara, that sounds so tempting, especially since you'll be there. I haven't read Madeleine Thien's work yet but I know she's been very successful. But my mom's (who lives in BC) is coming to visit us then! Have you ever been to the one at UNB?
