Fantastic weekend at the Surrey International Writers’ Conference


After a Thursday, Friday, Saturday and half-day Sunday filled with workshops, I’m pleasantly fatigued but filled with enthusiasm. Blogging is my new baby thanks to Sean Cranbury. You can find Sean at 

I’ve been writing for the past 20 years and finally “published” three years ago (at the age of 77). So there’s hope for all you scribblers out there. If you live in British Columbia, Canada, join the Federation of BC Writers to learn more about Writers Helping Writers. Our organization is for all scribblers, published and/or hoping to be published as well as self-published authors.Look us up at

One of my handles is Ben Nuttall-Smith,  President,  Federation of BC Writers,

  1. Ben, it’s so good to see you blogging. Loved talking with you and Margot. She is so beautiful. Thanks for all the help getting my poetry book, Love between the Sacred and Profane, published. Look forward to the book launch. I think Blood, Feathers and Holy Men would make a great movie but with your performance and reading skills have you got the audio book done, yet.
