If you are in Toronto, you can take advantage of the wonderful Toronto Public Library writer-in-residence program, this year with Elizabeth Ruth. I just found out about it now, so maybe you don’t know about it either–here’s the deets:

Elizabeth Ruth with read your writing and meet with you to discuss what is working and what might need further development.
