Shut Up And Write
Jul 23 @ 13:00 – 16:00

Meet up with others in the library, and write. This idea originated in San Francisco and has taken Vancouver by storm. SUAW makes writing fun and relaxing. No prompts, exercises, critiquing, lectures, ego, competition or feeling guilty. Work on anything: poetry, novels, short fiction, transcription, analysis, reading, organising your notes – even email. The sessions are 3 hours in length, and we write for 25-minute bursts with breaks, and there are 5 writing sessions during the 3 hours. People report getting a lot done! Everybody is welcome. Co-hosted by author Jane Eaton Hamilton and the Salt Spring Public Library.

This is a fragrence free event.
