Surrey Muse Writers: a Bi-Monthly Drop-In event

Poster-July2

Surrey Muse Writers (SMW) is a bi-monthly drop-in for writers to present our work, exchange ideas and provide feedback to each other in order to facilitate the development of our creative writing projects.

Initiated by writers themselves, this group will allow those of us who may not have the resources to hire editors for manuscript evaluation or editing, to have a group of peers to look at our work to help us make it stronger and clearer. Guidelines will be in place for a respectful, positive, warm and inspiring interaction.

The first meeting of Surrey Muse Writers will take place from 11am to 1:30pm on July the 2nd at Waves Coffee beside Surrey’s Gateway skytrain station. We will have Poet/Editor Joanne Arnott as our Resource Person, and the meeting will be facilitated by Helga Parekh and Sonja Grgar.

Joanne Arnott is a poet, author, editor and arts activist. Her first book of poetry, Wiles of Girlhood (Press Gang) won the League of Canadian Poets’ Gerald Lampert Award in 1992. She has published five collections of poems, two poetry chapbooks, a collection of short nonfiction and a children’s illustrated book. Her writings have appeared in numerous anthologies. Joanne guest-edited Emerge 2010 (SFU/The Writers Studio), and text-edited Salish Seas: an anthology of text + image (AWCWC 2011).

Surrey Muse Writers does not intend to replace the need for professional editors rather it wishes to support writers to present stronger and ‘cleaner’ manuscripts to editors and publishers. Information about local reading groups, writing workshops, and recent calls-for-submission will also be made available.

Surrey Muse Writers will continue to meet at the same place and time every Second Saturday from July 2 to November 19, 2016 to determine need. The link below has the Schedule.
