    Tous les mercredis, Pierre Brochant et ses amis organisent un dîner où chacun doit amener un con. Celui qui a trouvé le plus spectaculaire est déclaré vainqueur. Ce soir, Brochant exulte, il est sur d'avoir trouvé la perle rare, un con de classe mondiale: François Pignon, comptable au ministère des Finances et passionné de modèles réduits en allumettes. Ce qu'il ignore c'est que Pignon est passe maître dans l'art de déclencher des catastrophes. G, 120 minutes.

    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.
