Over the next few days i'll be at the Canadian Creative Writers and Writing Programs conference & founding convention. While i'm not sure i'll have the time to blog it in any kind of thorough manner (would that even be interesting to anyone other than me?), i will definitely do some tweeting using the #CCWWP hashtag. Tomorrow's schedule looks good; i plan on attending the Workshops in Creative Writing and the Technology and Creative writing panels.

This year, i'm working as a writer-in-the-school at a jr./sr. high school, so this conference couldn't have come at a better time. i'm excited for the chance to glean some knowledge from more experienced creative writing teachers.

That said, i skipped out on the first evening, but it looks like @kipress caught some good moments.

Tonight i was at Flywheel (for those who don't know, it's a monthly reading series in Calgary held on the first Thursday of every month at Pages bookstore on Kensington). It was a really great reading: Patrick Horner pulled off a cool multivocal text, Jen Kunlire always has great delivery, and Gary Barwin was energetic and hilarious. A fun night!
