Meet the Presenter 2010 - Ivan Coyote

Plans for 2010 are coming together well. Here at SiWC Central, we are SO excited about all that's going on. Keep your eyes on this space, because there's big news coming soon... Very Big News.

Did I say that loudly enough? Perhaps I should put it in bold. Very Big News. Coming soon! I wish I could tell you now, but I will. Soon. I promise.

To tide you over until then, here's a bit of news I'm tremendously excited about, a brand new presenter. Meet Ivan Coyote.

Ivan Coyote was born and raised in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. An award-winning author of five collections of short stories, one novel, two CD’s, four short films and a renowned performer, Ivan’s first love is live storytelling, and over the last fifteen years she has become an audience favourite at music, poetry, spoken word and writer's festivals from Anchorage to Amsterdam. The Globe and Mail called Ivan "a natural-born storyteller" and Ottawa X Press said "Coyote is to CanLit what k.d. lang is to country music: a beautifully odd fixture."

Welcome, Ivan!


Can't wait to hear more details about the conference! Hope to make it this year. Ivan Coyote is supposed to be terrific. It's great that you have her lined up!

She is a sensation. She overflowed the room on Howe St., Allaince for the Arts when she spoke to the Can. Authors Assoc. a few years ago. Now her presence is even more in demand!

She is the Opening speaker for our local festival-- "Write on Bowen" -- July 2- 4, Bowen Island.

Kathy -- you have really chosen a powerful list of wword magnets to draw in writers to SIWC!
