Coming Events





Free Memoir Writing Workshops for Seniors: Dec. 10, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at Alexandra Neighbourhood House!

Everyone has a life story. If you want to tell yours – or someone else’s – these workshops will help. Join facilitators Ben Nuttall-Smith and Elizabeth Wallace for three Tuesday afternoon gatherings. 

Based on the belief that we learn to write by writing, we’ll alternate hands-on assignments with group discussion. After the first two sessions, you’ll be invited to include a story in the chapbook being prepared on Dec. 10th. Come curious and leave published! 

Registration/Questions: or 778-837-6458.
