CALLING ALL WRITERS: Ok – if you (or someone you know that you can share this to) is one of the countless shy, closet poets/fiction writers out there living in the Pembina Valley region I want to meet you. Nothing formal – I would like to get whoever is out there together over a beer or a beverage of your choice (that you pay for)  for a VERY informal hello and discussion of possibly getting together again and maaaaaybe formalizing something like a local writers group/guild or the like so that we might leverage each other’s experience and connections or just to know that you aren’t the only writer out there. Email me at
