Are you interested in getting your writing published? Then you do not want to miss this year’s Words the Orangeville Way (WOW) on Saturday, November 10 at 1:30 p.m. at the Mill Street Library. Enjoy an afternoon discussion on pathways to publication. Four successful authors will share their journey from written word to published work.

Harry Posner, Dufferin County Poet Laureate, will facilitate a panel discussion featuring M.J. Moores, Nicola Ross and Richard Scarsbrook, followed by a question and answer session. Hear about experiences with fiction, poetry, non-fiction, editing, publishing companies, self-publishing and more. Learn tips and tricks from those who have walked the path to publication.

The event will also feature a demonstration of BiblioBoard, an exciting new online tool offered through the library’s website to help writers put their written work into shareable formats. Local writers can create professional quality eBooks for personal use, distribution to Ontario libraries, or submission to a publisher. Readers can access BiblioBoard to find local Indie authors.

“Orangeville/Headwaters is rich with literary talent and the library is committed to local writers,” said Chief Librarian Darla Fraser. “Through the annual Words the Orangeville Way (WOW) literary festival, writing workshops, a partnership with the Headwaters Writers’ Guild and now BiblioBoard, we are providing a range of programs and services to nurture and support local writers.”

WOW will also include a marketplace for Headwaters region authors. Books will be available for purchase.

The Orangeville Public Library offers a wide range of programs for children, youth and adults. For more information regarding the Orangeville Public Library and upcoming events, visit www.orangevillelibrary.ca, Facebook, Twitter or call 519-941-0610. A Visit Will Get You Thinking.
