Preachings and teachings and readings, oh my!

Well, my idea of a quiet summer ahead in which I could turn out the next great Canadian novel, seems to have vanished in just the last few days.  To start with, I’ll be reading again at the Mudpuppy Gallery’s  Beat Night, Saturday, May 28, starting at 7:00 pm., only this time it will be held across the street at the Downtown Expresso Cafe, 249 Dalhousie, Amherstburg.  The last Beat Night was such a huge success, they needed a bigger venue and the Cafe nicely fits the bill.  Coffee and refreshments will be served and the poetry will be totally awesome.  (Ye gods!  Did I just say that?)

Also, I’ll be preaching at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church July 10th and 17th at the 10:30 am. service.  The church is located at 129 Simcoe in the Burg  (519) 736-4972.  Everyone is welcome to attend and coffee hour will follow the service – Presbyterians LOVE coffee hour!  St. Andrew’s is a wonderful little congregation, so if the Spirit moves ya, come join us for song and fellowship and of course coffee hour.  Oh, and I hear the preaching’s pretty decent too!

Then on Sunday July 24th, I’ll be leading a writers’ workshop at Bump Maternity Shop,10 am. to 12:30 pm. 1719 Wyandotte St. East, Windsor, (519) 256-3452.  Why a maternity shop, you ask?  Well, the organizer of the workshops, the amazing Vanessa Shields, has just released her book, Laughing Through a Second Pregnancy, and she and the owner of Bump are good friends, hence the unusual location.  My workshop is just one in a series to be offered throughout July, and you can get all the details at Vanessa’s web site, under the Writer’s Workshops and Guest Writers Series label.  My workshop is entitled From Writing What You Know to Writing What You Feel: One woman’s struggle to find her voice, reclaim her soul and write it all down before she forgets it.  Check out the other workshops on Vanessa’s site, and you might want to sign up for one or two or five.

That’s what I’ve got so far.  But I suspect another reading is coming up in June, and who knows what August will hold.  And if I can write a novel in addition to all this, that will be a true miracle of time management.
