Ore Samples launches on April 28 and here the poster that's pinned up in numerous places on both sides of the Manitoba-Saskatchewan border, online on the Flin Flon Public Library website and Facebook page, on the Ore Samples Facebook page, in various local and regional Facebook groups, and on Twitter.

This event is listed in the Flin Flon Arts Council newsletter and events calendar, the Flin Flon Reminder community events calendar, the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild ebriefs, the League of Canadian Poets National Poetry Month events listings, and on the Griffin Poetry Prize/Griffin Trust International Poetry Calendar.

Ore was mentioned in a story in The Reminder by Libby Stoker-Lavelle titled "Readers to kick off Poetry Month." An Ore-focused interview that took place on April 20 with Terri Eger from The Reminder resulted in a story titled "Ore Samples event features locally and nationally acclaimed poets" that ran on April 27 in print and online ahead of the April 28 launch. Huge thanks to The Reminder and both writers.

102.9 CFAR's Joe McCormick spoke with Library Administrator Cindy McLean about the Ore series. Huge thank you to both. (April 24)

Huge thanks to the Ore advisory board, to everyone who has worked to get out the word about this event, and to those who shared knowledge, wrote letters of support, and otherwise helped this series come to life. Huge thanks to those who help by liking and sharing and retweeting.

Huge thanks to the sponsors for their generous support of this new series and their commitment to the community and the arts.

Thursday is nearly here. Please come out, have a coffee, some cake, and give these fantastic writers a great audience.

Thanks everyone!
