The PEI Writers’ Guild announces its Annual General Meeting, Workshop, and Open Mic event to be held on Saturday, April 30, 2011.
Co-sponsored with the Department of English at UPEI, and made possible with support from the Community Cultural Partnership Program of the PEI Department of Tourism and Culture, the Workshop WRITING FOR CHILDREN with Deirdre Kessler, will be held in Main Building, Room 420, between 10:00am and1:00pm.
