Starting and running a writers’ group can be as easy or as complicated as you like. I’ve experienced both kinds. I’ll talk about the easy way, since it’s up to you to develop and you may be someone who loves all the intricacies of setting up rules and memberships and roles and bank accounts.
Whichever way you want to go, here are the two things to remember when thinking about a writers’ group. It has to be fun; and it has to help each member to develop his or her own writing style. You can think of a lot more reasons to have a group, but those two will be sufficient to attract and keep people engaged.Read More»

Times & Transcript writer Linda Hersey recently sat down with WFNB’s Executive Director, Cathy Fynn. The resulting article appeared in the Moncton Times & Transcript on 25 June 2016….
Serving the WFNB as executive director since November 2015 is Cathy Fynn of Saint John, a familiar face with this organization. With plenty of experience as a copywriter and project manager, she decided to take on the challenge.
“I worked with the organization, and the executive director wanted to leave because she had other projects to pursue. So they asked me, and because I have the experience as a project manager, I know how to manage projects and budgets and I understand the creative side as well.
“This was a great opportunity because I love working with writers. I love the field of writing and I believe writing really matters. Writers transform people and ideas and the world.”
The Fiddlehead and the Writers’ Federation of New Brunswick are now accepting submissions for the 2nd annual New Brunswick Book Awards. The program will celebrate books published in the 2016 calendar year and in three categories: poetry, fiction and non-fiction. The awards will be presented at a gala ceremony in Fredericton in April 2017.Read More»

When Cathy asked me to give the talk at the Literary Awards Night, I saw it as an opportunity to do some summing up. Having recently turned 80 summing up seems quite in order.Read More»

I went to Sackville in April to hear a talk given by a friend who attended a week long workshop in Colorado last year by the author of Women Who Run With the Wolves.
I have been out of the creative scene for years now, and honestly I wasn’t feeling any urge or pressure to reconnect with it. I went to this presentation because a) my friend invited me and I wanted to be there to support her and b) it was happening in Sackville, where I lived for two years, really miss and will seize any opportunity to visit.Read More»
