Tired of all the distractions of writing at home? If you live in Edmonton, you can go to the Writers' Centre. A great idea I would like to see replicated closer (i.e. a lot closer) to chez moi.
Apparently, there is one somewhat closer to home -- the Toronto Writers' Centre. It's quite impressive: check out the promotional video. This one, though, might be called the Toronto Writers'-With-Money Centre, as the full memberships fees are $175 + GST per month. To pay that plus a Toronto rent, you (or a generous benefactor) have to be doing well indeed. (The Edmonton Centre is in a public library, and is free.) However, there are daily rates for associate members (about $15 a day) and similar rates for out-of-province visitors, so I might take advantage of it when I visit TO (I have parents/friends there... it is my former hometown.) Thanks to Pearl for that information.
