Possibility of a New Partnership

Hey everyone!

Thought I wasn't going to have much to say today - until I opened my Yahoo! and found out that Lyndsay has been working on a new partnership for Frontier College in Ottawa for next year.

So here's the skinny: She had a meeting yesterday with a representative from another shelter in Ottawa. Shelter is close to downtown and we are looking into the possibility of another Saturday morning program - which would be great given the volunteer interest for Saturday programs - or an after-school program. I'm excited about the possibilities!

Frontier College aside - couple things of interested located on the web since yesterday. Couple sites of interest to any aspiring authors out there:

1. The Lulu Blooker Prize! - Awards for books based on blogs - which are apparently called Blookers (who knew?)

2. The London Telegraph is doing a series on "Writing a Book in a Year" where an author, Louise Doughty, will be giving advice to aspiring authors and running them through various exercies. The article is HERE. And there is a message board that has been set up HERE. Beware the pop-up advertising. It's a bit over the top.

3. Lastly, I found something called the LitBlog Co-op. The jist is that it is meant to unite the literary blogs on the web, draw attention to "the best of" contemporary literature and help those struggling to get noticed in the marketplace. Link will also be added along the side of the blog.
