Comox Valley Writers Society



Attention all writers and aspiring writers!

If you write, or are thinking about becoming a writer, you do not want to miss the upcoming North Island Writers Conference on January 26 and 27, 2018.

Co-hosted by the Comox Valley Writers Society and North Island College’s English Department, the weekend kicks off on Friday with a free social event featuring keynote speaker Bev Sellars, the current Haig-Brown writer-in-residence. Everyone is welcome. Social begins at 6:30 pm in the Tyee Lounge, NIC Comox Valley Campus. Refreshments will be served and books on sale.

Saturday offers 15 interactive workshops and panels with 23 published authors. There is something for everyone from getting that first idea, wrestling with writer’s block, grinding through the edit process, and self-publishing. Need insight into writing for young adults, leading readers through clues in a gripping mystery, creating a dynamic stage play, or putting words to music? The invited authors have these covered, and more.

But hurry! Registration is closing soon. Check out the full program on the CVWS website: When you have made your selection, you can register and pay online through NIC at

For more information, please contact Leslie Cox at 250-337-8051 or duchessofdirt [at] telus [dot] net.


Lee Yateman Hired to Help Decorate the New Canadian Tire in Victoria with Nootka Sound Carvings


Lee carved and Sunny Tate painted. Pictured above and below are some of the Nootka Sound carvings which were installed in the new Hillside Canadian Tire store in Victoria. There are many more around the store.  It was a big job and Lee stated it took Sunny a long time to paint the carvings.
