West Country Writers’ Ink

Since its inception in 2000, the West Country Writers’ Ink has provided a forum for writers to share their work with other writers, discuss the experience of writing, and encourage each other to keep writing!

Some members had never written a ‘creative’ word before joining the group, while others were members of various other writing groups or had works accepted in various publications.

“More Selections from West Country Writers’ Ink” is a Centennial edition; both a commemoration of Alberta’s 100th Birthday (1905 – 2005) and a celebration of writing by the members of the West Country Writers’ Ink (2000 – 2005). Includes selections by Brian Bradley, Margaret Corbet, Myrtle Grovet, Helen Hoszouski, Victor Jensen, Betty Murphy, Ron Bradley, Orpha Donnelly, Maria Haubrich, Diamantina Hurren, Evelyn Lewis, and Vivia Oliver.

“Poems” is a collection that includes contributions from Ron Bradley, Brian Bradley, Vic Jensen, Betty Murphy, Myrtle Grovet, Helen Hoszouski, Orpha Donnelly, and Evelyn Lewis.



August 9th Photos 2020

August 8th was a great day, with sunshine and a little rain and gusts of wind to keep everyone on their toes.

Sunday the 9th was a perfect day with lots of sunshine, and visitors spending time browsing artwork and chatting with the artists. Thank you to all the artists who attended: Amanda Frost, Christina Ekman, David Todd, Doug Taylor, Ed & Marlene Potter, Raevyn Berg, Ron Bradley, and Vern Steinbrecker.
A last minute addition to the group, Derick Dunphy, set up for the second half of the day, and some of the local car club members even drove by to say “Hi” in style!

A big “Thank You” to the Markerville Creamery staff who dropped by to take ice cream orders from the artists and then deliver the treats right to our tents.

And of course, a huge thanks to everyone who came by to check out our first Artists on the Avenue event and for supporting the arts in this crazy year 2020.

In case you missed it, here’s August 8, 2020 photos from the art show and sale.
