Links Galore


It's been a terrific week for Surrey and for SiWC mentions this week. Check out some of these links.

Beloved SiWC MC and board member Carol Monaghan is profiled in the Peace Arch News here. Anyone who's seen Carol in her cape or her devil horns won't be the least bit surprised by the mention of an over-the-top sequined dress, but who knew she could bake, too? Multi-talented, our Carol.

Harvinder Sandhu profiles some of the great stuff Surrey has to offer - including SiWC; thanks, Harvinder! - in the Surrey Now here.

Longtime attendee and SiWC success story Jan Markely had the chance to attend Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) symposium in Bologna, Italy, followed by a few days at the Bologna Children's Book Fair. She's blogging about her adventures here.

SiWC presenter Crystal Stranaghan and her partner Jared Hunt are travelling around to offer a series of workshops, next up in Kamloops at the end of this month. Check out the details here.

And finally, former SiWC Storyteller's contest winner and regular attendee Christine Brant is using her blog post today to share why she keeps coming back to SiWC and why she thinks you should, too. Thanks, Christine!

Happy Friday!
