807 A Northwestern Ontario Literary Review

Calling all Thunder Bay readers. Pick up the magazine 807: A Northwestern Ontario Literary Review and read the works of the 2008 writing contest winners. Included are the winning poetry, memoir, children's fiction, flash fiction and short stories. A good looking publication too. Big congrats to editors Rosalind Make and Deborah deBakker and the prodcution team.

The application forms for the Sleeping Giant Writers' Festival are now at the public library. Circle August 22, 23, 24 on your Blackberry (OK, your calender). Many congrats to the seventeen local sponsors and to the organizing committee who brought us such a great line up. I definitely plan to attend Alistair McLeod's workshop on the Novel and the Short Story. However, I cannot make up my mind which of the other workshops to take in - Flash Characterization by Steven Heighton looks interesting.

Congratulations to Alan Wade, who won the 2008 Chronicle-Journal Arts and Heritage Award. Alan's columns on the history of Thunder Bay are always unusual and interesting.

Watch here for the date of the launch of a new book of poetry by Elizabeth Kouhi. Title is Waiting for the Greening.
