|The McMillan Building, Perth, Ontario|
Tis the season, so I wanted to pass on some news about what the Perth Writers Guild has been up to. We are a small critiquing group (six of us) focussed on improving our writing. As a result, individually we have won competitions for our short stories.
This fall we held three garage sales to raise funds, then published a collection of our stories titled Tales for a Winter Night. Within two short months, in this small town, the sale of that book has raised $1,500 for the Children's Aid Snowsuit Fund. We can hardly wait to start writing and critiquing our stories for another volume next year.
To order a copy of Tales for a Winter Night email HelenOfPerth@Cogeco.ca
The cost is $10 plus $2 for shipping. We challenge other writing groups to do something similar for charity. It's a great motivator to write, is lots of fun, and gives back to the community.
