Poetry Troubadour Circle (+18)

The last Tuesday of the month – 7:15pm to 8:45pm.  Come share your love for poetry and discover new poems. This poetry appreciation group will explore how poems speak to the heart and the human condition. Facilitated by Mary Lou van Schaik

In the Heart of the Library (all ages)

Author readings and discussion. Facilitated by Ruth Salmon and Ilse Turnsen (, subject: In the Heart of the Library).

Write Night (15+)

Come play with words, your words! Linda will offer creative, short, and fun writing exercises to simply goof around with words and ideas and different ways into the writing process.  No experience necessary just an open mind and a playful spirit…and maybe a favourite pen!

This is a Friends of the Wakefield Library (FoWL) sponsored program where we play with words and writing in a bunch of different ways. No experience necessary, just a sense of curiosity, a love of words and an inclination to shake off any creative cobwebs that might be lurking within yourself. We will use different short writing exercises to get the juices flowing. (We surprised ourselves on more than one occasion last year!) How you participate is always your choice, including whether you decide to share out loud what you wrote.

Facilitated by Linda Vanderlee (, subject: Write Night) Maybe you have a writing exercise to share with us. Linda would be delighted to share the facilitating role if anyone is interested.
