Arranged by Golden Ears Writers at Maple Ridge Arts Centre Theatre lobby, 7-9pm. Free and all welcome.
Last night I attended Julie's travel writing session for Golden Ear's Writers.... Julie was like a leprechaun sharing her pot of gold. She threw out gold coins for two hours. I scooped every one of them. She is so knowledgeable, experienced, and generous. The content was extremely practical, concise, organized, and delivered with enthusiasm and gusto. Many thanks Julie for a memorable presentation. Eileen McKenzie
