ABOUT READ HEAD
SO MANY CONVERSATIONS about writing have to be cut short, because of a train or a baby, or because the janitor wants to lock the doors. Here, I hope to carry on those conversations.
This blog is about writing the first sentence, writing a memoir, writing in the morning, every day. It’s a writing class and a book club and the books page and a long chat with a girlfriend who writes and reads as much as you.
NATALIE APPLETON IS a Canadian writer living in Vernon, BC. Her stories have appeared in publications around the world.
After graduating from the University of Regina’s School of Journalism in 2003, she went on to work for several daily and community newspapers across western Canada. When the recession struck, she turned lemons into London and began an MA in Creative Writing (Narrative non-fiction) at City University London, UK.
She is currently polishing a memoir manuscript entitled How to Meet a Nice Man from Medicine Hat, a book about leaving everything behind for Bangkok, a city that introduced her to a new way of life and the love of her life, a man from her hometown.
Natalie has lived in London, Bangkok, and now resides in the Okanagan, where she works as a freelance writer and writing teacher. She grew up in Medicine Hat, Alberta, and has lived in most cities in western Canada as well as one village.
