Because of occasional wild winter weather, that, the WFNS Office has put a plan in place to ensure the safety of staff. On days when the weather is questionable (sidewalks and roads unplowed, ice, heavy snow, extreme temperatures, etc.) your staff may be working from home. On those days, a notice will be posted on social media and our website. If you have an urgent query on those days, please email firstname.lastname@example.org as we won't be in the office to answer the phone.
The Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia has a new executive director: Marilyn Smulders. Smulders takes the reins of the organization following the departure of Jonathan Meakin, who recently moved to a position in municipal government after almost five years with the WFNS. Smulders' first day will be Tuesday, November 14th.
We're pleased to announce our first set of programming for the 2017/18 programming cycle!
First up, on October 21 & 22, we have More Than Just Ghosts - A Workshop with Steve Vernon
Then, starting on November 1st and continuing for 4 weeks on Wednesdays, we have Making Fact Read Like Fiction - A Workshop with Dean Jobb
Have you always wanted to give us a try? Are you a lapsed member who'd like to come back? Well, now is the time to do it. Membership is currently $30 for the balance of 2017. That's half-price!
In addition to several other benefits, members receive discounts on workshops and sessions. We'll be announcing our fall line-up in late summer/early fall.
