May 27 – Save the Date!

Celebrating Ten Years!

In the spirit of our tenth anniversary and the feelings we have about our Sooke/T’Sou-ke landscape and home, we chose the name Sooke XO for our tenth anthology.

We are proud of what we have achieved over the past ten years.

Our first anthology, Scribblers, named after the original group, was published in the spring of 2014. The past ten years has seen a growth from 8 members participating in the anthology to the 25 or more we have published in the last few years.

We continue to grow and evolve and look forward to many more years of community/collective writing and publishing energy.

Please  join us the for launch of our latest anthology, Sooke XO, on May 27th at the Sooke Region Museum Pavilion, 1:30pm.
Readings, mingling and treats + books for sale.
