Thanks to reporter, Red Deer College

Thanks to reporter Lana Michelin at the Red Deer Advocate, for her work in the advance publicity, and a tip of the hat to Red Deer College for hosting its Seven Days in May writer in residence.

Thanks to reporter Lana Michelin at the Red Deer Advocate, for her work in the advance publicity, and a tip of the hat to Red Deer College for hosting its Seven Days in May writer in residence.

As a writer, who has done many such residencies, this one was especially well-organized and productive.

It was also a pleasure to spend time in the beautiful city of Red Deer, get a round of golf in at the splendid River Bend, and jog on the many paths and trails.

Many thanks to the area participants, the library staff at RDC and especially Rod Schumacher for their diligence and thoughtfulness.

To all my new writing friends, keep at it and remember, a story is what you make it.
