Dear Nuala: This is great! Thanks for the update! I will have to read the intricacies of the offerings as there are always so many strict rules and you know it is giving me a lot of impetus to stage something here in Canada. You are very arty over there and very encouraging of the arts OPENLY. This I find to be something I'd like Canada...not enough here as far as I'm concerned. Need more creative minds coming together sort of thing. Yes! TyTyTy! tanku!

Chico - I am off to Toronto in June for a short fiction conference and I am SALIVATING at my guide book at all the cultural goodies that await me.
Ireland is a small country - every town has its own arts festival - not all of them great.
And you have Atwood and Munro and MacLeod and Alanis Morrissette and Feist and the Wainwrights and Jim Carrey and all those extraordinarily talented people!
I can't WAIT to get to Canada!
