The Start Writing Annual 2017 contains 26 original pieces that grew out of my workshops last year. The journal launched with a reading/release party at our new favourite venue, The Monarch Tavern.
I consider this project a celebration, and so the schedule allowed as many people as possible to read from their work. Sixteen writers took the stage to share brief excerpts from their stories and poems. It was a super night, both because of all the great pieces we heard, and the great support from the extended Start Writing universe.
A few event pictures are below. There’s more over on Start Writing’s Facebook page. The launch event more or less brings this year’s project to a close . . . leaving about three weeks until work begins on next year’s annual. See you in 2018!
