Kudos to Nadja, Jane, Penny, and Dana. Plus don't miss Sue's book, Sexy after Sixty, and you're invited to a book launch!

Thank you!

Hi, Brian.

I’m so excited.  I just got news that The School Project, my middle-grade category entry into the annual CANSCAIP Writing for Children Competition, has made the short list! 

I have to thank you and our Friday morning Intensive Writing Class for all your support.  My writing has improved so much from the constructive feedback we all get in the class.

Penny Thompson

 And congratulations also to Jane Parker, who made it into the longlist with her picture book entry, Belle and the Ball.


Hi, Brian.

I hope my email finds you in good health and spirits!

I wanted to share my newest essay with you, published by CBC. 

My thanks goes to CBC and the wonderful editor Tamara Baluja, but also to my host mom Karen who after reading my TIME Magazine essay about my mom, said: "Maybe the next one should be about your dad" and thus, lit the spark. 

Peace & love to all,

Nadja Halilbegovich

Hi, fellow writers.

If you’re in the Gravenhurst area be sure to drop into the Shipyards at the wharf and view the new selection of books by Muskoka authors, including my book book on healthy aging - Still Sexy After Sixty … Seven Secrets to Finding Life’s Sweet Spot. It’s the perfect antidote to Covid.

THX a bunch
