WHISTLER OUTDOOR ENDURANCE
& SURVIVAL WRITING CONTEST
Here are the two winning entries in the 2018 Whistler Outdoor Endurance & Survival Writing Contest. Winner of the Open Category is Alexandra Rochester who inspires us with her tribute to the dogged endurance of children and the love of a sport. Winner of the Youth Category is Irie Smith whose poem invites the reader to join her as she climbs a mountain.
STORY OF MINE
An Adventure in Community
What brought you to Squamish? What keeps you here? The Squamish Writers Group wants to tell your story. We intend to be an avenue for the expression of our stories. In 250 to 350 words tell us what brought you here or what keeps you here. (2009)
These were the words that led to a series of printed booklets titled Story of Mine published between 2009 and 2011. Spearheaded by Riun Blackwell and supported by the Squamish Writers Group, Story of Mine was an Adventure in Community. Sea to Sky Review will be republishing some of the articles first published in the Story of Mine papers.
The little video was produced by Riun Blackwell (interviews), Jude Goodwin (movie editing), and features music written by 13 year old Yvonne Hanson.
