This year I had the pleasure of working with the Writers’ Guild of Alberta. I was tasked with creating their annual writers’ conference branding and promotional materials. This was genuinely one of the funnest projects I’ve worked on and I sincerely thank the Writers’ Guild for trusting me with their conference materials.
The concept and title of the event this year is “Writing Across Worlds.” This project makes use of imagery that invokes the northern lights.

This project includes an 8.5″ x 11″ poster, a 2″ x 7″ bookmark, and a half-letter program containing the list of events, schedule, and speaker bios.

Themes will explore literary works that cross forms, genres, and cultures, as well as how storytelling is crossing into new realms—from the digital sphere to the sleeves of our coffee cups—and into the psychological space of our daily routines. We will offer keynote lectures, panel discussions, networking and social opportunities, and individual workshops devoted to creative nonfiction, poetry, fiction, and speculative fiction. All writers from across the province and beyond are welcome to register. Three spotlight presenters include Griffin-nominated poet and novelist Ian Williams, (Reproduction, Penguin Random House, 2019), accomplished author Larissa Lai (The Tiger Flu, Arsenal Pulp, 2018), and Senior Agent with the Transatlantic Agency, Carolyn Forde. Before her current role with Toronto-based Transatlantic, Carolyn was an agent and International Rights Director at Westwood Creative Artists for 14 years.—Writers’ Guild of Alberta website
