  1. Sharon, that sounds great. I’d love to attend an open mic event, and being somewhat new to T.O., I don’t know where they are. I’ll watch this space, and practice my heckling. By the way, please change my email address to, as the old address won’t work after Jan. 31.
    By the way No. 2, I’m Steve, from the Novel Master class. Cheers!

    • Hi Steve, great to hear from you. Absolutely, I too am looking for open mic opportunities in Toronto and will let you know when I hear of one. I’ve been to a few (outside of Toronto proper) since December and they are a great opportunity to test drive your work, and of course, to help get over your nerves. If you are willing to drive out to Whitby in March, there is a WCDR (Writers Community of Durham Region) event scheduled. Let me know if that would work for you and I’ll get you the information.
