We need you...

Dear friends of, and strangers to, the Elora Writers' Festival.
     It's a new year (for me, the year really starts in September) and now is the time to embellish your connection to this blog spot—and to the Elora Writers' Festival.
     Have you read a wonderful book lately—or a really disappointing one? And need to share your feelings and thoughts about it with the rest of the world?
     Why not post a review of it, here? On our blog spot. What readers think—regular, book-buying readers—is very important to us; you are our audience!
     And if you are a budding writer the formal demands of such a modest project go a long way in improving you writing skills. You will be amazed at what you're really thinking about, what your true opinion of a book is, once you put the Muse into top gear.
     Try it.
     If you don't like it, remember: It's the "shitty first draft" and you should let it get "cold" for a day or two and come back to it later.
     There are no deadlines here. But keep in mind that successful writers learn to impose their own deadlines.

When you're ready, get in touch with us through the blue-framed "Contact Us" box below.
