Brushing Elbows With SiWC

Surrey1This is THE weekend — the Surrey International Writers’ Conference is underway. I’m not a delegate this year but was there today as a volunteer to help staff a trade table for the Federation of BC Writers. As people drifted past or stopped to chat I was struck with a sense of belonging. I’ve attended before and everything was so familiar.

Surrey2When my task was done I reeeealy wanted to join the stream of hungry writers heading into the ballroom for dinner and tonight’s keynote speaker, Anthony Dalton, and then stay on for Michael Slade‘s infamous Shock Theatre presentation with Diana Gabaldon, Anne Perry, Jack Whyte and, of course, kc dyer. Instead, I left for home. My turn as a delegate comes up again next year. Not until next year…. ::sigh::
