When 2021 began, I reminded myself what I had pledged to do before my big birthday in 2020. This past year was not exactly the re-do I had expected. In some ways, though, it had given me the chance to embark on many new adventures. So far in 2021, I have had the good fortune to be chosen to be a Capital City Press Featured Writer
for the Edmonton Public Library. I taught another online creative writing course. I continued to collaborate with musicians, writing lyrics for Christmas songs (stay tuned). I continued work on a graphic novel with an artist/designer from Calgary. I collaborated with Brianna Tosswill/Penrose Press on an artist’s book, Avebury
, which we launched virtually during my term as a Capital City Press Featured Writer.
