Thinking Local

Recently, I started a blog for local (and local-ish) authors along with a local librarian. It’s called Stratford Authors and developed out of the discussions that Melanie and I had regarding the number of authors in town. We launched the blog in September 2012 and post an interview every Tuesday. It’s been really interesting to see the diversity in both authors’ experiences and their work. In December, we started to co-host a monthly event with the local library, too.

Lately, our little blog has attracted a bit of attention. Open Book Ontario features authors in one city or town in our province each month. When they chose Stratford for February’s feature, they found us. So, the upshot of all of this is that today Open Book Ontario has posted a little article by me about my desk.

I thought some of you might want to learn more about “where it all happens”. Here’s the link.
