Writing Circles at CAA

With Sue Reynolds, writing circle facilitator.

The recent CAA Canwrite! 2015 conference included three writing circles. The two I attended were both fun and inspiring. Ruth E. Walker led one and Sue Reynolds facilitated the other.

Sue is a psychologist and counsellor as well as being a poet, creative non-fiction writer and the author of an award-winning YA novel.

I find that writing circles have a kind of ceremonial magic that causes participants to write things that surprise them. Sharing, though optional, is always interesting.

The diversity of work produced is quite simply amazing.
