Guest Speaker

Why Writing is Righting

Peter's journalism career spans more than 40 years and counting. It has taken him around the globe with stops at a guru's Himalayan hut, the Burning Man festival, and a seedy Night Flight brothel in Moscow. Peter talked about the power of words especially when the timing is unexpected and the big impact. He regaled us with plenty of examples from his storied career how you can breathe life, humour and mindfulness into not only your serious upper-case W Writing projecys but- just as importantly- all those everyday jottings, texts, x posts, fridge notes, interpersonal communication, and yes, even business correspondence. It was an amazing kick-off to our season. Thank you Peter!

A short review of our completed events will be posted here.
