Thank you to everyone who came out to support the Vancouver and Surrey launch of Listening to the Bees. Mark and I are gearing up for the next launch event in Victoria on May 25 at the Fortune Gallery. Hope you can make it!
I’m honoured and excited to be the tenth annual Writer-In Residence at UBC’s Okanagan campus. Until Feb 12 I’ll be working with students and fellow writers to provide critiques, selecting winners from a short story contest, and doing classroom readings.
Appreciating having the time to work, engage, connect…
