The Friday evening social — Poetry, Prose & Pins — takes place at the Sackville Bowling Hall. It features readings by internationally acclaimed novelist Shandi Mitchell and this year's short-listed poetry winner, Travis Lane. It also includes an open mike session, refreshments, and a best bowling haiku contest.
Saturday offers two in-depth, interactive workshops on the craft of writing. Shandi Mitchell presents "Inside the Heart of Character" on creating characters, and Gwen Martin presents "The Three Energies of Editing" on the secrets of self-editing.
The WordsFall fee of $85 WFNB members/$110 non-members covers both workshops, workbooks, catered lunch, refreshments, and all readings — a real deal. See the website for full details.
