Congratulations to Wired Writer George Elliott Clarke on having been named Canada's new parliamentary poet laureate! His work was so great with Canada's students in our program—just wait to see what he has in store for our M.P.s!

It is with great sadness that I report the death of Ed Leslie. A celebration of his life was held on Nov. 21. An obituary is here.

WiER is sorry to report that funding cutbacks in the government sector have had the effect of dropping WiER below an operational level. Accordingly, WiER's Trustees have suspended operations, effective December 31, 2013, which is our fiscal year-end.
The Trustees have opted to suspend the program rather than close it in order to provide some time to investigate other directions. Indeed, there have already been some discussions along these lines.
For more information, here is a PDF of our announcement.
Many thanks, all.
- During the period of suspension, we will continue to update our web site, and to make content available (e.g., author bios, The WiER Taps, Wired Writers Podcasts). Please feel free to follow us on Facebook, and on Twitter (@wiredwriters).
- Annual CRA filing completed and submitted June 30-15.
- Many thanks to Sue Carduelis and Allan Wadley for their lovely Lives Lived article on Emilt Hearn in the Globe and Mail.
