Port Alberni writers wanted in Ucluelet

The Writers Market in Ucluelet is looking for Port Alberni writers and poets to join them for a special spoken word event on Aug. 26.

The Writers Market in Ucluelet is looking for Port Alberni writers and poets to join them for a special spoken word event this Friday, Aug. 26 from 4–6 p.m.

The event is being billed as a spoken anthology as part of Ukee Friday Night Markets in Ucluelet.

“I’m very excited about some of the guests we have lined up so far,” spokesperson Jacqueline Carmichael said.

“Tell your friends or e-mail me at Carmichael.jacqueline@gmail.com to get on the list to read your work.”

Authors are welcome to bring books to sign, etc. Young writers, emerging writers and unpublished writers are all welcome.

“Please keep in mind this is a family market,” Carmichael cautioned.

“Also, if you are published, send me a book cover image so I can promote, for example One Mush—Jamaica’s Dogsled Team, by John Firth and Erin McMullan, who is planning to be with us to read.”

Carmichael is also excited that Ucluelet bookseller Susan Lee of Blackberry Cove Marketplace will bring a sampling of West Coast books and will tell anyone who asks about West Coast authors.

Favourite Geoff Johnson will provide musical accompaniment at the Writers Market.

Ukee Friday Night Market will have vendors, along with the Tofino Ucluelet Culinary Guild’s Growers Market. The market itself goes from 3–7 p.m.
