Food, fun and fellowship with Golden Ears Writers

The third Tuesday of each month is the regular "Lobby Night" of the Golden Ears Writers of Maple Ridge. Tuesday, three mentors from the Southbank Writer's Program at SFU in Surrey spoke about this summer opportunity for writers who want to hone their craft. Southbank runs May through mid-August, on the fourth floor of Surrey City Centre Library, next to SFU Surrey.

Katherine Wagner hosted, and photos by Ronda Payne have been posted on Facebook. Thanks Katherine and Ronda! We enjoyed dining with you at the Big Feast too.

Although Southbank was originally intended to serve writers from the Fraser Valley, we've also had writers from New Westminster, Vancouver, and Burnaby. Surrey Central Skytrain station is just minutes away.

Even though Maple Ridge is on the north side of the river, we've been told the new Golden Ears bridge makes it a quick and easy commute.

Interested? Come to the Southbank information session on February 8 between 12 and 2.

  1. It was great to see you, Renee and Claire on Tuesday!

    I found the commute to the Southbank Writers program quite easy...about twenty minutes from where I live in Maple Ridge with few turns and not much traffic.
