Eileen Bassett

Eileen Bassett was born in Colorado, but has lived in Dawson Creek for many years. She married Richard Bassett when she was 17 and continues to live on the farm they created. When Richard required home dialysis, Eileen served as his primary caretaker. During those years, Eileen began a memoir. While working on the memoir, Eileen also wrote short stories. In 2008, the Edmonton Journal published one of those, titled “The Last Ride.” The story remained on the Edmonton Journal’s website for six weeks during the time in which Edmonton played host to the Canadian Finals Rodeo. Eileen entered the 77th Annual Writers Digest Competition with a short story in the Inspirational Writing Category, titled “The Seventh Commandment.” The competition attracted over 17,000 entries, and her short story was awarded an Honorable Mention, placing her story in the top 100 stories submitted. The editor wrote and said, “Your success in the face of such formidable competition speaks highly of your writing talent, and should be a source of great pride as you continue in your writing career.” Eileen draws much courage from that sentence as she continues writing her memoir. When her husband passed away in 2013, she found that she couldn’t write at all, and only recently feels that she can return to her memoir, which will have a very much different ending than first planned.

Eileen will read from her work on Friday night at the Dawson Creek Art Gallery starting at 7 pm.

Iyan Bruvold

“The process of songwriting started after I bared my soul singing a song I wrote to a band member. He endorsed what he heard, and we started a band playing the songs we had until we disbanded in 1999. Since 2003, I felt the need to start a band which we did and because of that acquired the name Folky Strum Strum which I have toured with until now. Writing is an integral way of expression and I view it as necessary as the music itself when I listen and hear a song.”

Iyan will be leading Show and Tell with Songs with Naomi Shore on Saturday at 1 pm at the Kiwanis Performing Arts Centre. Iyan will also be showcasing his songs on Friday night at 7 pm at  the Dawson Creek Art Gallery.


Amy Crandall

Amy Crandall is a seventeen-year-old avid reader and novelist born and raised in British Columbia, Canada. She began writing in elementary school, publishing her first story on Wattpad.com at the age of thirteen. With the support of her loved ones and newfound friends on the site, Amy continued to share her thoughts and interests in the form of storytelling.

Before her Wattpad.com days, she was published in A Celebration of Poets – Summer 2012 (Creative Communication, 2012) for her poem “My Garden.” That experience only drove her desire to further pursue writing. Her first full-length novel, Delusions, was a featured story on Wattpad.com, reaching #7 in the mystery/thriller genre, and surpassing 115,000 reads before its publishing.

When she isn’t envisioning a new story plot, Amy can be found camping with loved ones, getting lost in a great read, jamming to her favourite tunes, or giving in to her craving of Timmies’ iced lemonades.

Amy will be reading at the Student Reading on Sunday September 30th at the Dawson Creek Public Library.


Zoe Ernst

“From a young age I was always playing pretend with friends, pretending we were magical princesses or playing barbies. As I grew older, pretend play got me into reading and role playing online with people all over the world. My favourite literature has always been fantasy and mythology.

My mind is filled with different, partly formed, stories. A couple years ago I started writing fan fiction for the many different fandoms I am in, but I never managed to find the motivation to finish them. This eventually moved to me writing  original stories. Most of the time I write fiction that is based off of real life with a few twists, but for short stories I use prompts I find online. One thing I always try to work into my stories, if I can, is a meaning. In fact, if I can, I work a meaning into all the stories.”

A student living in Tumbler Ridge, Zoe will read from her work at the Student Reading Sunday September 30th at the Dawson Creek Public Library beginning at 10 am.

Denise Gardiner

Inspired by early French-Canadian folk melodies and French ballads her Mother sang in her beautiful soprano voice, Denise Gardiner has been making up stories and songs since she was very little. In the Maritimes, there was music everywhere and she still has fond memories of Aunt Marthe’s kitchen parties in her ancient farmhouse. Many evenings also included story telling and reciting poetry. Denise’s father had an extensive memorized repertoire of poems. Kids were encouraged to participate and there was often healthy competition between siblings and cousins. Then, from the age of seven, Denise immersed herself in classical Romantic music. Today, it still influences her melody crafting. Mother Nature and family and community activities are also a never-ending source of inspiration both for the music and the written words. Denise is on a journey, all absorbing, never ending, with no boring moments; where every success and failure hopefully leads her up higher, closer to excellence; and if she can touch the listener’s soul and awaken emotion, she considers it “work well done.”

Denise will perform on Thursday night with the Songwriters of the Peace.

But it was her determination to follow through that landed her a publishing deal. Growing up, her wild imagination thrived off of reading and her most desired hobby was to let a book completely consume her. Unlike many writers, Jenna never wrote in a diary.

Ronnie has been writing her whole life, winning her first writing award in third grade for a play about sending all the elderly to live on the moon, which, as it turned out, was a huge mistake, as they took much of the world’s wisdom with them. After receiving the homemade wooden plaque one of her classmate’s father had made, there was no going back. She was hooked for life. Ronnie went the traditional route in the nineties, discovered indie publishing in 2013 and hasn’t looked back. She divides her time between two homes –one beside a golf course (she does not golf!) and the other an off-the-grid cabin in the woods. In the fall of each year, she returns to civilization with a freshly written book under her arm only to be totally flummoxed by what has occurred in the world in her absence.

Emmerson Van Oort

“Hi, I’m Emmerson Van Oort. I’m 13 years old this year and have an older sister of 14. I enjoy a peaceful life in the center of Dawson Creek with both of my parents and my sister. Things I like to do would be reading (a lot), math, strategy games, work (I’m too young to hate it), and, obviously, writing.

Currently, I’m writing on an app called Wattpad. I prefer to write historical fiction with a mix of fantasy over anything else. Actually, this is my first book, so I’ve never written anything else. My book is called The Royal Search. The description of the book is “Princess Makenna has run away to seek out her mother’s killer Mak, aka the mysterious mercenary. As Makenna finds her way through an underground city amidst the trials of love and the piercing feeling of loss, she must find a way to conceal her identity, her true feelings, and this new power within.” Quite the mouthful, right? So far, I have 203 reads, with readers from Iraq, Zimbabwe, United States, and Canada. I’m doing a competition and the results are due any day now.”

Emmerson will be reading at the Student Reading on Sunday September 30th starting at 10 am at the Dawson Creek Public Library.
