Several local authors were featured at the Write Out Loud Local Writers Night at the Lyric Theatre in Swift Current, Feb. 21.


Grade 11 student Robin Matisho started the evening by reading some of her poems and a short story. She participated in last summer's Sage Hill Teen Writing Program in Swift Current and she is already a published author, with one of her works recently included in a book of short stories by young Canadians.

She is currently working on a novel series. Saskatoon resident Rachel Laverdiere, who was born and raised in Swift Current, read from her new collection of short stories, which will be published soon, as well as a short non-fiction piece.

Tina-Marie Letwiniuk, the current president of the Prairie Quills Writers Group in Swift Current, read a number of extracts from her writing while speaking about discovering her inner writer voice. She encouraged audience members to discover their own writer voice and to focus on writing for themselves. Stormchaser and severe weather photographer Craig Hilts spoke about his goal to tell a story through images and he read excerpts from his recently published book “Living Skies” about the dynamic skies and weather in Saskatchewan. The next Write Out Loud event on March 21 will feature fiction writer and poet Dave Margoshes and the musical entertainment will be provided by Corinne Newton. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program starts at 7 p.m.
