Thursday November 23, 2017 – Creating a Character with Neil Enock


November 23rd, 2017 at 7:00 PM at St Mark’s Lodge. Members only.

Creating a Character with Neil Enock

The writer of a play creates a character but it is the actor who breathes life into the character to make him/her come alive for an audience. Perhaps we can learn how those techniques can be used to help us create fuller characters in our writing in the first place. Join us as Neil Enock takes us through the process of character development.

In honour of November’s Remembrance day and in the spirit of the giving season coming upon us, we are asking members to bring a non-perishable food item which we will donate to the Veteran’s Fund.

New Book by Suzanne Stengl – A Wedding and a White Christmas


Suzanne Stengl releases her new novel, “A Wedding and a White Christmas”

Getting from “I do” to “I don’t” before anyone finds out! 

On a whirlwind Christmas visit to Las Vegas, and after a long night of merrymaking, Emily and her best friend, Mark, stumble into an Elvis Chapel and get married. The next morning she realizes her mistake. Although she loves Mark, and has since childhood, he’s not marriage material.

For Mark, it’s not that he has commitment issues—or any issues, for that matter—but marriage would complicate things. He and Emily are friends and he doesn’t want to mess with that. Besides, he knows Emily is on the rebound. She’s not over her failed engagement to Dan the idiot.

On top of that, there’s Emily’s aunt. Myra doesn’t like Mark and if she learns about this elopement . . . well, let’s just say, there will be no Peace on Earth this Christmas!
