I’ve applied for Sage Hill Writing Experience Fiction Workshop in Saskatchewan this July, hoping for ten days of writing and critiques with facilitator/author Terry Jordan. After my book launch parties and my videopoems are completed I want to focus on writing and new works for the rest of the year. I’ve heard only good things from Sage Hill alumni and it would be such a boon to my novel, The Town Slut’s Daughter. I’d stand a good chance of completing a final draft at last. We shall see. If I’m not selected, a friend has offered his cabin in the Nicola Valley for a writing retreat. It’s really the only way I can get a leg up on such a big project, to flee the domestic front.
