The Writers’ Union of Canada AGM
The end of June I attended 40th anniversary AGM of the TWUC (The Writers’ Union of Canada), where I’ve been a member since the late seventies. (Other North Bay writers in attendance were Barry Grills (former Chair of TWUC) and Jennifer Rouse Barbeau.) The honour of giving the annual Margaret Laurence Lecture this year was given to the poet Lorna Crozier. Her ‘lecture’ was really a long poem about the art and craft of writing, which had the audience enthralled.
