Open House cancelled; writers return

The A-frame annual Open House, in partnership with the Ameliasburgh Fall Fair, had been scheduled for September 19 and 20 this year. Regrettably, due to the pandemic, both the Open House and the Fair were cancelled for 2020, but hope to be back in 2021.

On the good news side, the Association was able to put together a skeleton program in late summer, following the easing of federal and provincial restrictions. Three writers were able to take up partial residencies. They will return to fulfill their community obligations when conditions allow for public events. Meanwhile, other writers awarded residencies at the A-frame for 2020 will be rescheduled when the 2021 season opens.
