Hi Everyone, I am a local author in Ajax Christine Iliadis. I have published, ‘Paradox of Freedom’. I am inviting Writers of any caliber to an open session where we all come together as a writing community to discuss writing stumbling blocks, provide encouraging feedback over a coffee on Wed Feb 8th@7 pm at the Ajax Library main branch on 55 Harwood avenue. It’s from 7-8:30 and please bring a notebook, pen and a fellow writer that you know. All my sessions are free.
Will you be able to make it this Wednesday? contact me: https://www.facebook.com/groups/christineswritersblock/
Thanks to Everyone that came to support the Local Authors & Artists by attending our Event! It was good to see everyone getting a head start on their Holiday shopping too!
