Canadian Authors Association March Meeting

Info about CAA’s March meeting from Jessica Purdy:

Hello everyone,
It’s almost that time again for our monthly branch meeting.  We are looking forward to having our first crime writer up to talk to the Leacock/Simcoe group.  Crime novelist and screenwriter, John McFetridge, will talk about the crime writing genre in Canada as well as what it takes to write mystery and crime into your novel.
Our Writers Helping Writers segment this month will focus on writing your second draft and having the perseverance to keep going.
Please note that this month the meeting will take place on the last Wednesday of the month, the 25th, rather than the Thursday.  It is a temporary change and meeting dates will go back to the last Thursday of the month in April.
Please see the attached poster for details.
