My summer/fall dance card is filling up with a number of fun, bookish events:
New Tecumseth Public Library Writing Workshop- July 24th, New Tecumseth ON
The wonderful staff at New Tecumseth public library are holding a teen writing contest which I will be judging along with 3 other distinguished judges. If you are a teen in the Alliston, Beeton & Tottenham area, check out the guidelines here. Entries are due July 17th. I will be visiting with teens on July 24th to award the winner and hold a writing workshop.
Telling Tales Festival– September 16, Rockton ON
This little festival-that-could has a great line-up and features unique and interactive workshops for all ages. Held in the beautiful Westfield Heritage Village and featuring events for readers of all ages, it’s a wonderful destination for the entire family. Telling Tales works with some great literacy initiatives and does a lot of outreach, and I’m thrilled to join their line-up this year.
North Words Muskoka Literary Festival– September 28-30, Huntsville ON
Muskoka is one of the most beautiful places to be in the fall, and by the looks of this festival’s 2012 line-up, one of the most literary, too! I’m looking forward to chatting about Clarissa, Benji, and all things middle grade among the fiery autumn leaves!
Hope to see you out at one of these events!
