Convergence Writers’ Weekend

June 16, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - June 17, 2017 @ 9:00 pm

Friday, June 16 and Saturday, June 17, 2017
Knox Hall, 521 6th Avenue, New Denver, B.C.

Join authors Gary Geddes and Carolyn Pogue for a weekend of writing workshops and discussions.

“A house divided against itself will fall,” goes the old proverb. Our house—our world, our community, even our self—is threatened with many issues of ethical dislocation, injustice and dis-ease that can divide or paralyze our forward momentum. Some of these things are new, some have been with us throughout history. Whatever threats face us, one of our most powerful tools for motivating connection, social progress and justice is the written word.

Every day the world discovers more and more how everything is interconnected. Our Convergence 2017 theme, We Will Not Be Separated, will focus on exploring positive connections we can make with and through our own creativity, spirituality and activism. We will learn from and encourage one another. We’ll look at how the world is, and how the world could be. New and seasoned writers are welcome.

Convergence 2017 offers registrants a chance to work on their writing with either Carolyn Pogue or Gary Geddes in Saturday workshops. You can hear them speak Friday evening at a session open to the public. And Saturday night an optional session provides the opportunity for registrants to read from their work and to discuss what they’ll take away from Convergence.

Registration fee of $45 plus GST = $47.25 covers all events Friday and Saturday.
Friday’s session is open to non-registrants by donation.
