by Denise Wilkins

Having previously partnered with playwrights and songwriters, this year The Ontario Writers' Conference continues its tradition of celebrating all forms of art by inviting writers to respond to visual art by local artists. New artwork will be posted on their website on January 1st, February 1st and March 1st.

The currently featured artist is Denise Wilkins, an accomplished photographer with a unique approach to capturing life's moments. Since childhood Denise has expressed her love of art primarily in pencil sketches, watercolour and acrylics with people being her main interest. While forging fearlessly through her battle with breast cancer, Denise continues to employ her talents within the community through her business, Lifeart Designs.

Submissions must be 100 words or less and can take any form (poetry, prose, dialogue, etc.) The top five entries for each of the three art pieces will be selected and displayed at the 2013 Ontario Writers' Conference, to be held May 3rd and 4th at Deer Creek Golf and Conference Centre in Ajax, Ontario. Conference participants will then select their favourite from the 15 shortlisted works.

For more information and to enter the Story Starters writing contest please visit The Writers' Conference website or contact Barbara Hunt at [email protected], 905-985-4409.
