Mark Tuesday, June 5 on your calendar. That’s the date we launch Whispered Words, an anthology of the best entries from our recent prose competition. The book launch takes place at Azian Cuisine in Ajax from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Several of the prizewinning writers will read their entries. Copies of the anthology will be on sale for $19.50 and many of the contributors will be on hand to chat with guests and sign books.
Whispered Words attracted 220 entries from across Canada and around the world. Contest organizers are delighted with the response: it has been one of the most successful contests WCDR has ever offered.
We are already planning our 2012 contest, Amprosia. Guidelines for the 2012 contest are posted on the WCDR website.
Azian Restaurant is in Ajax at 1995 Salem Road North at Taunton Road. Admission to the event is free. It includes appetizers and a cash bar.
Good news—bad news
Pssst…the Whispered Words anthology launch is just one week away. A crowd will gather at Azian in Ajax on June 5. They’ll snack on appetizers and feast on whispers as our contributors read their pieces to the crowd. But here’s the bad news: if you haven’t already RSVPed to the Whispered Words anthology launch, you’re too late. That’s right—we’ve filled all 70 seats.
The good news is that you can still purchase a Whispered Words anthology. They’re available for $19.50 on the WCDR website. You can either pick up your order at a WCDR breakfast (another popular ticket!) or have your mailman deliver it right to your door.
Got a ticket, need a ticket?
Got a spare ticket? Maybe you requested too many, or you can’t make it to the launch. Don’t scalp those extra seats. Email firstname.lastname@example.org instead. We’ll make sure your spot is filled.
Sad and ticketless? Crashing the party or bribing the bouncer won’t work. Instead, keep checking WCDR’s Facebook page. We’ll post any loose seats as they become available.
Countdown to launch: T minus eight days and counting…
