Ontario Arts Council Supports Northern Writers

Great news for four Thunder Bay (and region) best writers. A jury has chosen four local published writers, John Pringle of Atikokan, and Thunder Bay residents Marion Agnew, Heather McLeod and Joan Baril, to receive Writers' Works In Progress Grants. Writers in Fort Albany, Goulais River, Thessalon and Sudbury have also been chosen.

My project is a book of short stories to be called Snowshoe Baseball and Other Stories. Each story will have a northern theme. The title story, Snowshoe Baseball will deal with a FAS teen and others will explore Thunder Bay past and present,including a ghost story based on an incident involving the famous local NHL hockey player Lorne Chabot.

I know I speak for all supporters of literary activity when I say thank you to OAC. The Ontario Arts Council is an agency of the Government of Ontario.
