Some great news came my way in the last couple of weeks. The Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council (NLAC) has approved a writing grant for me. I’ve been working somewhat slowly on a project lately that could really use a boost that allows me some extra time to complete the writing. I figure the summer is a great opportunity to step up my creativity and the funds from NLAC will certainly help. I appreciate the support and am sure it will go along way.
I also noticed that Mike Heffernan has the featured project on the official NLAC site. It’s for travel to Halifax to read and promote his new book Rig: An Oral History of the Ocean Ranger Disaster. I picked the book up a while ago at a reading he did in St. John’s, but am yet to read it. I figure it will make some great vacation reading. You can find the book here.
