I am so excited to announce that I am the proud recipient of a 2023 Microgrant from The Writer’s Union of Canada. This grant allows writers to receive professional mentorship to further an identified writing project. I will be using the funding provided by the Microgrant to finish the first full draft of my novel, tentatively entitled ‘Virtues’. I am thrilled that I will be supported and mentored by Trilby Kent whose writing skill, wisdom and teaching excellence is unparalleled. A very big thank-you to The Writer’s Union of Canada!
