Wild Words with the WCDR

I was overjoyed to find out that I had won the Writers’ Circle of Durham Region’s Wild Words Anthology Cover Art Competition.

I have followed the WCDR on the Internet for a while - in fact, I found an opportunity on their contest calendar a few years ago that lead to one of my first publications - so it was great to be invited to a literary breakfast and to meet members.

The breakfast included a keynote speaker, announcements of scholarships, and lots of talk about writing retreats and book launches.  It was inspiring!  Throughout the breakfast I kept thinking, But how do they attract so many people, how can they be this organized?  I would love for the Guelph area to have a similar support network for writers.

I would like to thank the WCDR and Heather M. O’Connor in particular for inviting me out and showing me a great time.

Open Book Ontario published a news piece which includes an image of the cover.
