News & Notes

We’re getting ready to Celebrate!

Our anthology #6, Sooke Writes Again, is at the printers and will be launched on May 26th.

Our anthologies reflect the collective location, eclectic story-telling and unique voices of writers from the Sooke region. They are an exciting collection of prose and poetry by members of the collective and winning student entries.

All are welcome to attend to get the first look at our newest anthology, meet our members, offer congratulations to the student winners or read from their own work.

Evy can telepathically understand horses, but she’s not sure if it’s a blessing or a curse. What she is sure of: her secret “gift” seems to get her in a lot of trouble!

Ride along with Evy, Rusty, and Twilight on their many adventures in this complete collection.
