More great Ore on May 26

This event promises to be another dandy! Come by on May 26 and have a coffee, cake, and a listen. Everyone welcome. 

You're also welcome to take in the free workshop with visiting author Lorri Neilsen Glenn from 6-7 pm as well if you wish. It's a great opportunity to learn, add to your resume, or just try something new. See the previous post for more details.

Lorri Neilsen Glenn is the author and editor of over a dozen collections of poetry and creative nonfiction. Former Halifax Poet Laureate, she works with writers of all ages and backgrounds. She is currently working on a mixed-genre manuscript about Red River women. 

A retired librarian, Harry Hobbs has lived in Flin Flon for forty years. He is involved in Toastmasters, Flin Flon Writers Guild and Literacy. He has published a novel, short stories and poems in various anthologies, co-authored a book on Flin Flon with wife Glenda, and edited a book of children’s poetry. His second novel is in the final editing stage. He has been a facilitator for poetry and fiction courses at Writers Village University. 

Born and raised in Flin Flon, Manitoba, CC Trubiak is a multi-faceted artist, singer/songwriter and performer.  With two independent albums under his belt (2011’s ‘They Say I’m Different’; 2013’s ‘Tiny Army: The D Holmes Sessions’) CC’s honest lyrics and intimate musical style are very much influenced by experiences both in and beyond his hometown.  Expanding his musical horizons CC has also taken part in musical productions (Chicago, Les Miserables) and enjoys playing locally with an array of talents, most notably at Johnny’s Social Club.  Currently working on a third recording project of self-penned music, CC will continue his musical journey with the same hope and optimism he infuses into his creative endeavors.
