This past weekend was the first of what we think will be many 48-Hour Writing Marathons, sponsored by THE Tutoring Center, Engen Books, and Thrive! A great time was had by all, we raised a lot of money and collectively wrote over 60,000 words, the majority of which (over 10k!) went to Sci-Fi from the Rock author Stacey Oakley.
Lots of authors and writing enthusiasts showed up to write and enjoy a quiet creative space with which to work and bounce ideas off of similarly-motivated individuals. All said an amazing weekend, and we thank Call of the Sea and Supernatural Causes author Amanda Labonté for arranging it!
So apparently Sci-Fi on the Rock 11 and the Fantasy from the Rock launch party at A.C. Hunter Library (Arts and Culture Building) is only a week away? Time flies! Plans have been in place for months but a year’s worth of planning is really starting to take shape now. It’s going to be a great night on its own, and a great way to kick-off a great weekend celebrating the fantasy genre and writing in Newfoundland. 🙂
Join us in the Community Room at the A.C. Hunter Library to help celebrate the launch of Engen Book’s latest anthology. Fantasy from the Rock features 21 magical stories written by 18 spellbinding authors.
The event will feature selected readings from the collection and presentations by contributors, followed by a book signing, meet and greet, photo opportunities (with Blueberry, the fairy!).
Entrance to the book launch is free, and copies of Fantasy from the Rock will be on hand for $20.Join the event on Facebook here for updates: https://www.facebook.com/events/595011487364644/?active_tab=about
