Storyteller Extraordinaire...



...and long-term favourite of this conference Diana Gabaldon just gave our Writing Contest a mention on her blog The Voyage of the Artemis. Diana and Jack Whyte got together several years ago to sponsor the fiction element of our writing contest, now called The Storyteller's Award. Not only do they sponsor this element of the contest, but they also judge the entries. We continue to be thrilled and honoured by their generosity to other writers -- a huge part of the spirit that keeps our conference alive from year to year.

Thank you to both Diana and Jack for their contributions -- and to our other roster of wonderful judges (Lois Peterson & Elizabeth Lyon for Non-fiction, Bernice Lever and Susan McCaslin for Poetry and Shelley Hrdlitschka for Writing for Young People) who ensure that the quality and judging in each of the four categories of our writing conference is held to the same high standard.
