Canadian writers age 14-17, there are four days left to enter the Amazon Youth Short Story Contest, of which I'm a judge this year. You could win $5000! Send us your stuff. All the details are here.
I'll be at the Galiano Island Literary Festival next month. They have sea lions! And a great lineup. There's a new interview with me at their site, in which I discuss my junior self and the difficulty of naming characters, etc.
I'll be doing a reading with Sheena Kamal, whose novel I can't wait to read. I'll also be interviewing the fantastically interesting Anna Porter onstage. Tickets are on sale now.
