The Grey Bruce Writing Marathon is back! The last weekend of April, I’ll tether myself to my typewriter (erm, MacBook) and write fervently for three days straight in the front window of local publishing house The Ginger Press in downtown Owen Sound.
Alright, we are allowed to take breaks and sleep and stuff. But for a good part of the weekend, I’ll spill my blood, sweat and tears on the page for all the world to see, in an effort to raise funds for the critical literacy programs that support adults across the region.
And this year, I want YOU to join us! It doesn’t matter where in the world you are, either.
This year, I’m inviting all sponsors who pledge $25 or more to join me in a two-hour, online co-writing session during the marathon. Get your creative on with like minds! We write in timed sprints with breaks for networking, brainstorming, or fetching caffeinated beverages. Bring whatever you’ve been wanting to work on—fiction, poetry, your website, journalling or memoir, or even a writing prompt to get your creative juices flowing. Writers of all experience levels and ages are welcome…
Take a decade in writing and publishing, add agency-side marketing experience and layer over a background in adult learning. I have a distinct user-focus and consumer perspective that’s invaluable to brands competing for eyes and dollars.
