So you think you can write? One of my favourite (and cringe-inducing) events at Word on the Street is Pitch the Publisher, where authors try to sell their book idea to a group of local publishers, who have seen it all. If you have ideas, book space at email@example.com or 420-0711. WOTS is September 28 at the Cunard Centre.Maybe you think you should be the last filmmaker standing. Or at least one of 15, in AFCOOP’s annual One-Minute Scholarship Program. Applications for the all-expenses-paid scholarship are due by September 22. If you have an idea for one-minute, silent, black-and-white 16mm film, download an application form at afcoop.ca/omf. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 420-4572.
