Writers' Ink at Caledon Public Library

Ah summer



Ah summer … ‘the prime and vigour of the year’ as Charles Dickens wrote in Oliver Twist, and the perfect time to read but also to write.

While the Albion Bolton Chapter of Writers’ Ink is taking a wee break from their meetings (but certainly not from writing and creating), the Alton and Margaret Dunn Valleywood Chapters are continuing to meet throughout the summer and want to make sure that everyone knows that they are welcome to join them anytime. If you agree with Henry James that summer afternoon are the two most beautiful words in the English language, then you’ll also know that there’s no better time than a warm summer afternoon to relax in the welcoming cool of a shade tree … but wait a minute! You’re writers!  How could you not use those delicious stolen moments to work on a little something for Caledon Public Library’s Click.Create.Celebrate contest?  The answer is obvious of course – you will use them, you must! This year the contest runs until September 10 and as always, there are categories for Adult Short Story and Adult Poetry, with prizes being awarded for place winners? Is the muse silent? No worries – let those creative juices flow and enter the contest’s photography category. For more details and entry forms, visit our website or pick up your copy of the contest brochure at any branch. So come on, you artists of word and image, keep creating and have fun as you

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
You’ll wish that summer could always be here*
