And indeed there will be time
For the yellow smoke that slides along the street,
Rubbing its back upon the window-panes;
There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet;
There will be time to murder and create,
And time for all the works and days of hands
That lift and drop a question on your plate;
Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of a toast and tea–T.S. Eliot

Time to head off to the nearest sanctuary and write, or time to head to the Sage Hill of Lumsden and if you’re in a time crunch here’s something new this year at St. Peter’s College:

NEW Summer Workshops

Study writing and photography in extraordinary ways.

This summer, St. Peter’s College welcomes the Poet Laureate of Halifax, Lorri Neilsen Glenn, as our Guest Author in Residence.


Lorri is the author and editor of nine books, including Combustion (Brick Books, 2007). She has taught writing workshops, courses, and retreats across Canada, in Australia and in Ireland. Her poetry, essays, and research have won several national and international awards. This spring, Lorri was nominated by her Faculty for the Mount Saint Vincent Innovative Teaching Award.


Join us this summer by attending our writing workshops with innovative instructors Lorri, Sheri Benning, Anne McDonald, and

Allan Neilsen.
