    Do you love to write? Is writing the air you breathe, or is there ink in your veins?

    The Stittsville Creative Writing Group is a collection of people who love to write.

    We meet weekly to read from text we have written on our own time during the previous week, and engage in other writing activities.

    This is not a class on writing, or a workshop for manuscripts. Instead, we are people who love to write and share our works. 

    There are those who mostly listen rather than write, those who write prolifically but only share with the group, and a broad spectrum in between.

    If your interest is in the love of writing, this group may be for you.

    Join us for a Labrador Documentary Project, a series of short films celebrating Inuit culture and teaching history from the beautiful northeast coast of Canada. The directors of these films - Heather Campbell, Holly Andersen, Jennie Williams, and Ossie Michelin - are also past participants and recent leaders of the Labrador Creative Arts Festival, the longest-running children's art festival in Canada.

    Part oral history and part visual poem, Miss Campbell: Inuk Teacher is the story of Evelyn Campbell, a trailblazer for an Inuit-led educational system in the small community of Rigolet, Labrador.

    In Hebron Relocation, Holly Andersen explores what makes a place a home as she learns more about her community’s connection to generations of displaced northern Labrador Inuit.

    Run as fast as you can, the Nalujuit are here! Filmmaker Jennie Williams brings us the story of an exhilarating and sometimes terrifying Nunatsiavut tradition in Nalujuk Night.

    In Evan’s Drum, an adventurous young boy and his determined mother share a passion for Labrador Inuit drum dancing.

    Joignez-vous à nous pour le visionnement d’une série de courts métrages célébrant la culture inuite et l'enseignement de l'histoire de la magnifique côte nord-est du Canada.

    Tenant à la fois du poème visuel et du récit oral, Mlle Campbell : enseignante inuk relate l’histoire d’Evelyn Campbell, précurseure d’un système d’éducation dirigé par des Inuit dans la petite communauté de Rigolet, au Labrador.

    Dans Le déplacement de Hebron, Holly Andersen explore ce qui fait d’un lieu un véritable chez-soi, alors qu’elle découvre les liens qui unissent sa communauté à des générations d’Inuit du nord du Labrador qui ont été déplacés.

    Sauve qui peut, voici les Nalujuit ! La cinéaste Jennie Williams nous raconte, dans La nuit du Nalujuk, une réjouissante — et parfois terrifiante — tradition du Nunatsiavut.

    Dans Le tambour d’Evan, un petit garçon aventureux et sa mère déterminée ont une passion commune pour la danse du tambour inuite.
