NLAC Support

Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council

Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council

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.
