If you happen to be in lovely Terrace, BC early this August (or if you could be) and you’re a writer (established or newbie), the Northwords Writing Camps are running again and you should be there! There’s an adult camp running August 2-5 from 6 – 8:30 for four evenings and a youth one (ages 11 – 16) running the same dates from 10:00 – 1:00. The camps are FREE (thanks to the wonderful Terrace Public Library and generous sponsors noted on the posters below) and feature three different authors presenting–including me. 🙂
You can register for the youth camp at the library and for the adult camp at Misty River Books. I hope to see you there!

I’m so glad this tradition continues! It was very fun when I got to attend.
I was raised in Terrace B.C. but unfortunatly I now live in Edmonton, Alberta. I have always been interested in writing a book. It would be interesting to find a www site where a person could find help/info on writing such as what is possibly shown in this Northwords Writing Camps 2011. I can be tracked down on Facebook if anyone knows of such info & would like to contact me Just look for Cam Schulte who lives in Edmonton, Alberta.
Wish you could be here for this one, Jen!
Thanks for stopping by–and re: “I have always been interested in writing a book. It would be interesting to find a www site where a person could find help/info on writing such as what is possibly shown in this Northwords Writing Camps 2011.”
If you google “how to write a book” or “how to start writing” or “writing tips for beginners” (or any phrase along those lines), you’ll find some great information.
Also, I suspect that if you do some searching (call libraries, ask around at bookstores), you will find that somewhere in Edmonton there are classes, workshops, etc for new writers. Good luck!
p.s. The best way to begin writing is just to begin! Grab a piece of paper and a pen or open up a new Word doc on your computer and start letting that book that’s always been inside your head, out. 🙂
What a great workshop it was! Well done Ev!
