It is still spring, isn't it? Doesn't summer officially start later in June? So maybe we aren't *late* after all.
The Inkshed Newsletter, Volume 23 Number 1, is now available both on the web and as a pdf download:
Two presentations from the latest conference begin the issue--one by Miriam Horne that uses the voices of inkshedders past (yes, go and look and see if you can identify yourself) and the final session by Russ Hunt in which he weaves the voices of inkshedders present (you know who you are) into the kind of dialogue that only inkshedding seems to create. Wendy Kraglund-Gauthier contributes a valuable compilation from a CASLL discussion of the history of writing centres, and I have assembled a short bibliography from the book we edited for Inkshed that lists Canadian scholarship in writing cited in that book.
And if that isn't enough to get you to click the link above, there are also pictures--of the Gimli Viking and of some inkshedder vikings.
Please also take a minute to click on the Editor's Desktops link--some important items of business were passed at the AGM (more books, Inkshed: The Journal, and a possible alliance with other writing-related organizations in Canada).
