Gift of Story Writeshop

Gift of Story – Calgary Young Writers Conference April 2017

Apr 22, 2017

These are a few of my favourite things: talking and writing with kids who love to “hang out on the page.” Calgary students from grades 4-8 converged at the spectacular Robert Thirsk High School to write, draw, shop for their favourite books, and meet some real live authors! Kudos to those teachers who spent Saturday with their over-the-moon excited students! (Appropriate metaphor for a school named after an astronaut…)

Participant Comments

“Are we really allowed to keep the pens? And the notebooks? Do you have any extras?”

“My mom loved your book. Can you sign my looseleaf?”
