For the first of our 2019 reading series, Spoken INK welcomes authors Cynthia Sharp and Sharon McInnes. Readings begin at 8:00 p.m. at the Burnaby Art Council's Deer Lake Gallery, 6584 Deer Lake Ave, Burnaby. The Burnaby Writers' Society will host a critiquing workshop at the gallery prior to the readings (6:15 – 7:45 p.m.) and, as always, there will be Open Mic opportunities following the featured readings.
