Writing the Roller Coaster-Burlington Family Literacy Project!

Writing the Roller Coaster-Burlington Family Literacy Project!

 

It’s a Virtual Life

I live on the computer
Almost a real life
Frozen until a cure comes

This is my own form of haiku–instead of five, seven, five syllables, it’s seven, five, seven. I didn’t re-invent the form on purpose, I made a mistake. But I like it.

Lynda Simmons and I want to document your pandemic feelings, through your story or poem, in an anthology sponsored by the Burlington Community Support Program.
It would be nice if you are somehow linked to Burlington should you wish to submit. But you can also submit anonymously.

There is no reimbursement, this isn’t a contest–therefore you and your family can definitely write it together. Team writing–a great family literacy project.

We have free workshops available to you through Burlington Public Library.

For kids and parents February 11, 4-5:30 Sylvia McNicoll

For adults, February 18, 2-3:30 and 7- 8:30

We will also be posting writing tips in February.

Does your work have to be perfect? Lynda and I will edit it but remember my imperfect haiku. If you make us feel what you’re going through, we will love it.

Visit writingtherollercoaster.com to find out more and to submit!

Let it all out!

I hate Covid!

You can scream into the Icelandicair app.

Or how about this. Write about it.

If you live in Burlington or have lived or work in Burlington, check out a new project I’m working on with renowned author and creative writing instructor Lynda Simmons at:

You can put your feelings into a story about your pandemic experience and submit it for publication.

All ages, all walks of life. We want to document this historic event by publishing the highs, lows and the mediums of your experience.

Lynda Simmons is in charge of teen and adult writers. To help you get a good start on your story she’s giving two workshops on January 19.
at 2 p.m.     https://attend.bpl.on.ca/event/4784936

Or 7 p.m.   https://attend.bpl.on.ca/event/4785001

I’m in charge of the 8-13 year old writing submissions. To help young writers create a story for the project they can register at:

You don’t need a Burlington library card. But I love mine!

Thank you to the City of Burlington Community Funding Grant.
