Final news from 2011

My time at the Banff Centre was wonderful. What a perfect place for artists and writers! I’m very pleased with my mentor, Marina Endicott. The online portion of the Wired Writing program is well underway and I am more than happy with how things are going. What a blessing to have Marina’s insightful comments and editing, and to have a deadline each week to force me to get to work… Marina feels I should have a final draft by the end of the mentorship period (end of March, 2012).

Here are a few more pictures from the Banff Centre.

In the meantime, an early draft of my novel is long-listed for the Mslexia Women’s Novel competition. Further results will be in January, 2012, and I am lucky enough to once again be accepted for the Sirenland Writers Conference in Positano, Italy next year. (See my earlier blog on Sirenland).

A flash story of mine was published in The Irish Times, “The Promise” and also in 100 Word Story, “Workout“.

Wishing everyone the best for the holidays and see you in 2012!
