To our upcoming events! That’s right, I said ‘events’, plural. This Fall, we’ve got some great events lined up and we hope you’ll come out and see us.
First up, on Sunday September 25th, 2016 we’ll be in Toronto at the Word on the Street Festival. Described as Canada’s biggest outdoor bookstore, the festival runs from 11am to 6pm at the Harbourfront Center, downtown Toronto. We’ll be in the section called ‘Fringe Beat’ with other small and indie presses. If you’d like to know more about the festival, go ahead and check out their website: http://thewordonthestreet.ca/toronto/
Next is our very own Worlds Collide Gala where we’re celebrating our new partnership with Adventure Worlds Press (read all about that, here) and our 2016 launches! Join us at 7pm Friday September 30, 2016 at Sho: Art, Spirit, and Performance 628 Monmouth Dr, Windsor for a night to remember. You can meet several of our authors, along with myself and the team behind Adventure Worlds Press, listen to some readings, win some prizes, enjoy the cash bar and light refreshments, music, and participate in the Q and A afterwards. As a part of Culture Days in Windsor, this event is free and open to everyone to attend.

Lastly, (for the purposes of this post anyways!) on Wednesday October 12, 2016 on behalf of the Arts Council Windsor & Region and Bookfest, I’ll be facilitating a workshop as a part of ACWR’s Art.Work Series. The workshop, Publishing 101, is geared toward writers who have completed their manuscripts and are considering their next steps. $10 for members and $15 for non-members, the workshop will take place at the Artspeak Gallery 1492 Wyandotte St, East, Windsor from 6:30 – 9pm. Here’s a link to the registration form where you can find more information if you’re interested in attending: http://acwr.net/event/publishing-primer-acwr-art-work-workshops/?instance_id=183852
Thanks for reading and I look forward to hopefully seeing you at one or more of these great events!
