At our Biennial General Meeting on May 22nd, we said good-bye and thank you to outgoing president Paula Jane Remlinger and Secretary-Treasurer Melanie McFarlane.
Introducing our new president – Kristine Scarrow:
Kristine Scarrow has worked as a freelance editor and as editor-in-chief for two magazines. She also spent several years editing for a book publisher and considers the editing process to be one of the most challenging but satisfying parts of crafting a book. Kristine is currently the Writer-in-Residence at St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon. She is the author of four young adult novels. (Photo by Danielle Mase)
and our new Secretary-Treasurer – Jessica Williams:
Jessica Williams was born and raised in BC and now lives in Swift Current with her wee family. She loves to create; writing, painting, knitting, sewing, crochet, scrapbooking, pottery, stained glass… you name it and she has something in her house that she made herself, even if it didn’t turn out very good. An advocate for mental health awareness, her first book, Mama’s Cloud was named one of the best indie books of 2018 by Kirkus Reviews. Her favorite quote is “in a world where you can be anything, be kind.”
Thank you to Krisitine and Jessica for stepping up to fill these roles!
