Sonja Grgar

Sonja Grgar is a writer, dancer, and a freelance journalist who has worked in print, radio and television. In her writing, Sonja attempts to portray the poetic complexities of existence. What she finds the most meaningful about the written word are its limitations; that it is an imperfect expression of our life and breath.

MargoBates-SteveWebster-EnricoRenz with SanaJanjua & VirginiaGillespie at Word Arts LIVE ‘Ages & Stages’ – 14 January 2018

You are invited to the second session of Word Arts LIVE series at Alexandra Neighborhood House. Unlike the first one, this is a theme-based session titled ‘Ages & Stages: Dreams, reality checks and things that go bump in the night’ contemplating youthfulness, adulthood and golden years through the perspectives of an author, a poet and a performer. The session consists of three events with plenty of discussion time.

On January 14th, ‘youthfulness’ will be explored by Author Margo Bates, Poet Steve Webster and Performer Enrico Renz with Host Sana Janjua and Discussion Facilitator Virginia Gillespie.

Margo is the author of P.S. Don’t Tell Your Mother and The Queen of a Gated Community who teaches workshops on research strategies for writing, storytelling, and publicity for authors.

Steve Webster

Steve is part of Cedar Bark Poets, a poetry reading group he helped establish a few years back that meets in Newton each month. Though he is not ‘really a Bio kind of guy’, he did say this about himself: ‘An apparently failed recluse. A bodger and man of reuse, semi-bohemian life long Newton resident and Surrey volunteer, with hands in far too many pots. Builder, gardener, poet, amounts others, and master of none, but enjoys seeing where the world goes.’

Enrico Renz

Enrico is a singer and songwriter who plays guitar, bass, keyboards and drums. He has released a cd titled Skytrain as part of Secret Messengers. Enrico co-hosts a weekly Songwriters Open Mic with Lawren Nemeth and Lilija Valis in New Westminster. In his journey into music, he experienced a long period where he chose to withhold writing, composing and singing. Meanwhile, everything else was on the go including playing improvised music and chess(!) both entwined into the process of creating songs. Enrico’s country of origin is Switzerland, and he recognizes Italian and Swiss-German as mother languages. Enrico lives and teaches in Burnaby.

Virginia Gillespie

Virginia says:

‘I’m very pleased to have completed phase one of Word Arts LIVE! – a collaboration with Surrey Muse At Large. Thank you to Surrey Cultural Grants for support. Held in the Media Room at Camp Alexandra in Crescent Beach. We hosted five monthly reading events from February through June 2017. A group of loyal fans developed starting with 12 and ending with 30 + who enjoyed the diversity and range of the very talented presenters. Authors, poets, performers. In the final session we expanded to a play reading excerpt, and an artist showing deconstructed books. The potential is endless.’

The venue was great.

Appreciation to the staff and volunteers at
Alexandra Neighbourhood House.

And many thanks to Steve Chitty for his ongoing support to this project.

Mary plays the guitar, and ‘a little bit’ of piano and ukulele. She has performed music by many artists such as Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Joan Baez, the Eagles, plus traditional ballads. She was inspired to write music by other young musicians who she met in high school and university, as well, she recognizes many songwriters in the local communities as inspiring.
