Canada Writes & Fan Expo!

Earlier this month, I posted about Canadian Bookshelf's blog, Off the Page. This week, I've got another great Canadian book website to tell you about: Canada Writes, the new CBC addition to Canada Reads! It's got information on CBC's Literary Prizes, writing challenges (the current competition involves writing part of your autobiography), features such as writing tips from authors and a regular series exploring the relationship between writers and editors, and resources for Canadian writers. If you love writing, you could get sucked into this site for hours.

In other news, if you're in Toronto, Fan Expo is on from Aug. 25-28 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. This huge convention celebrates comics, anime, science fiction, computer/video games, and horror movies, and attracts thousands of enthusiastic fans, many of whom dress up as their favorite fictional characters. Our own graphic artist Fiona Smyth, author/illustrator of The Never Weres, will be at the Koyama Press booth all weekend, so drop by and say hi!
