Suspension of Operations

Posted by vswblog on November 19, 2008

Dear Friends:

With great regret we announce the suspension of operations of The Victoria School of Writing. Competition from other writing programs and persistent difficulty in filling positions for the all-volunteer board have necessitated this unfortunate move. We did not make the decision as a result of a crisis but with clear analysis and a bank account in the black. We ran a successful summer school program of courses and our reputation remains solid. Our exit will be graceful.

We deeply appreciate your support over the thirteen years since the school’s founding. The school has benefited from your gifts of time and money as well as your enthusiasm and participation in workshops, courses and literary events. We hope you have benefited as well from your association with the school.

If you have questions, please call one of the names on the sidebar, or below:

Tricia Dower: 250-383-9855

Lynne Van Luven: 250-721-7307

Bev. Cooke: 250-592-0342

Jody Collins: 250-380-9499.

Thank you for your understanding. We wish you much success with all your creative endeavors.

The Board of Directors
Victoria School of Writing
