Cea will speak about her two highly acclaimed memoirs, North of Normal and Nearly Normal. In the late 1960s, Cea’s charismatic grandfather uprooted his family to the Canadian wilderness in his attempt to abandon civilization. Cea has spoken about her unusual life story to many audiences. She has also taught memoir writing at Capilano University.

Saturday Morning Write-In (via Zoom)

Our popular Saturday morning write-ins restart in October! This informal & supportive group starts with a short warm-up exercise and then gets down to working on individual projects. Writing doesn’t need to be a lonely activity! Working together gives us energy and discipline that we can’t get toiling at our desks alone. Grab a coffee and write together via Zoom!
