But I wanted to draw your attention to a panel relevant to those who read CanLit for LittleCanadians.

  Friday, October 20, 2017, 

 6-7 p.m.


Knox Presbyterian Church

a trio of youngCanLit authors will present a panel titled 

A Means to a End: Keeping a Series Alive

In attendance will be three of the authors of Orca Book Publishers' Seven series,  The Seven Sequels and The Seven Prequels:

To create a story that is riveting and engaging is an accomplishment on its own. To continue a story throughout many novels and hold an audience’s attention takes an extraordinary talent.

These three authors have mastered the art of keeping a story alive through their tales of triumph, discovery, and self-actualization. Join us as award-winning authors Eric Walters, Richard Scrimger, and Shane Peacock discuss the process of series writing and how to keep readers coming back every time.

Full details of this event and all panels and workshops can be found at DigiWriting's website at with tickets available at Ticketscene
