Creative Ink Festival Rocked!

Pulp Lit authors Patrick Bollivar, Brenda Carre, and Mel Anastasiou signing books

Jen, Mel, and Sue agree what a pleasure it was to teach at this fantastic conference! With attendance topping 150, the secret seems to be getting out about the high quality of presentations, and the personal and helpful atmosphere.  Favourite highlights were blue pencil sessions, panel presentations, and the keynote by Adam Dreece entitled, “The Power of No, Damnit, I’m Doing This!”

Writers and editors alike left inspired, encouraged, and yet wondering why, with price tage of only $80 for three days of workshops, more people weren’t there.  In order to ensure a full house next year, we encourage all our readers to go to the Creative Ink Festival facebook page or website to keep in touch and be ready to pounce on the 2019 early bird registration rate! The Burnaby Delta Hotel conference room holds 600… we can fill it!

The ever-popular Real Life Superwomen panel is really just a chance for Sandra Wickham, Kristene Perron, JM Landels, and TG Shepherd to get together and laugh far too much.
Despite over 30 panels, presentations, pitches, pitches and blue and red pencils between us, the Pulp Lit editors still had time for quiet moments of deep discussion.
