I challenge you to take out & read a PLAY this summer!
There are so many reasons why reading a good PLAY is as good (or dare I say, even better) than reading a BOOK.
Through my membership with the Playwrights Guild of Canada, I am able to be a part of a great online resource, the Canadian Play Outlet Copyscript program, where you can buy a digital copy of many Canadian Plays.
To start with~ below are links to a few of my plays that are available through the Canadian Play Outlet~
And many, many MORE Plays for you to read!!
This coming June 21- 23/2019, I am heading to the mainland to join the uBlossom Team as a Speaker/Workshop Presenter at Loon Lake Lodge & Retreat Centre.
” Less than an hour from Vancouver, BC, Loon Lake Lodge and Retreat Centre is nestled among tall fir trees that frame the majestic Garibaldi Mountain Range. The sights, sounds, and smells of a wild West Coast forest is a perfect place for quiet reflection. Unplug, relax and connect with a collective of women, who are inspirational and lift YOU up! ” Dennyse Harris, Founder & Event Specialist uBlossom Retreats
The summer Loon Lake retreat is sold out but there are still some spots available for the fall uBlossom retreat at the Strathcona Park and Lodge in Campbell River. (Oct 4- 6/2019) I will be there as Speaker/ Workshop Presenter with the uBlossom Team.
