Story Harvest – Pickings Due January 15.

When the Pemberton Library first launched its Story Harvest in winter 2008, for Winterfest, the yield was a plentiful and intriguing collection of profiles of local characters. Further collections of story-portraits were harvested during Pemberton’s signature summer festival, the Slow Food Cycle.

This winter, the library has cast out a fresh challenge.

Map Your Neighbourhood with Words.

To celebrate Winterfest 2012 (January 20-22), the Pemberton & District Library is collecting stories about your favourite PLACE in the region. Don’t worry, you can keep the GPS coordinates completely secret.

Just share a 300 word story about a favourite place in Pemberton, the Meadows, Mt Currie, Birken, D’Arcy, your backyard, your playground, wherever you love.  Include a photo or drawing, if you have one. The Harvest welcomes all levels of writer, even those who haven’t written much, or anything, before.

Submit by January 15 to

(And if that fires up the scribbler in you, drop in to the first Writers Group gathering, 6-7pm on Monday, 16 January.)
