When Cheryl A. of SD 43 asks you to participate in the annual MACC Writer’s conference for grades 6/7, the only response is to say yes and then figure out how to free your schedule. This year’s all-day event had around 300 students, and 11 authors teaching them the craft.
I talked about one of my favourite subjects–Dungeons and Dragons. As a collaborative storytelling game, it really is the perfect training ground for young writers.
But not all was school and writing and conference. I also stopped into a cafe along the way called, Coffee+Vanilla. If you’re in the Coquitlam/Maillardville area, this is a pretty sweet spot with very good coffee!
This sounds like such a cool event! Even if I’m not a D&D player (I’ve only ever used GURPS and Pathfinder systems) 😁😁
One game I played we had a jar for one of the players. Every time she said, “That’s not how we do it in GURPS,” she had to throw a quarter into the jar! 😉
