IFWA Write-Off, a Calgary writers retreat.

Can’t seem to put a chunk of time together to write in?

Here’s an opportunity to write off a weekend!

The write-off will be held on April 18-21.

At the Richmond Meadows Recreation Hall: 4940, 39 Ave. S.W.

Join fellow IFWITS as we sit at tables and, to the sound of pencils and keyboards, write for the entire weekend in an atmosphere free of distractions. Banquet tables and chairs are provided. Please bring an extension cord if you are writing electrically. The lighting is sometimes inadequate so you may want to bring a lamp. Bus service is quite good with several routes coming directly from downtown. A small “coffee break” area will be set up for conversation.
