Salt Spring Island is one of my most favourite places in the whole world and combine that with a poetry slam camp and it’s heaven!

The Poetry Slam Camp is a great opportunity for high school students to harness their creativity by learning the craft of poetry.

Students between 15 and 18 years of age are eligible. The Camp will be two fun-filled days of writing, performance, and learning. Cost: $50, including accommodation, meals, and classes.

Margriet Ruurs’ on Jenny

Positive peer reviews always make me feel really great about being a writer, so I was thrilled when Margriets Ruurs’ posted her thoughts on The Freedom of Jenny on her blog.

It isn’t always easy for writers to get their books reviewed in traditional media in Canada. I have been lucky in that most of my novels, for better or for worse have received attention from newspapers and magazines across Canada and I am thankful for that. Still, when a respected and talented writer like Ruurs recommends one of my books it is especially satisfying.

I have a big smile on my face today!
