Farewell from the LWWG

It is with heavy hearts the Lake Winnipeg Writers Group must announce the official closure of the group. We would like to thank all our members and readers for their many years for support.

Our website has been updated with the meeting minutes from 2023 and will be available until 2028 (5 years).

For anyone looking to purchase copies of Voices from the remaining backlist, please contact Tyra Masters-Heinrichs via email or phone.


Thank you all again and Happy Writing.

AGM 2023

The Lake Winnipeg Writers’ Group would like to invite all members and
non-members to the Annual General Meeting on October 15th, 2023 at 2 P.M. in the Gaynor Family Library in Selkirk, Manitoba.

The Primary objective is to finalize business relating to the closure of the Lake Winnipeg Writers Group. This business will include going over the status of inventory, bank accounts and archival processes required for closure. Due to a lack of new executive management to assist with the running of the group and production of a yearly not-for-profit journal style publication, the LWWG unfortunately will be closing it’s doors.

We will be holding this years AGM in person as well as on Zoom at the link provided below.

Topic: Finalize LWWG Group Closure
Time: Oct 15, 2023 2:00 PM CST (Winnipeg Time)

We hope to see you there.

AGM Rescheduled

The Lake Winnipeg Writers’ Group would like to reinvite all members and non-members to the rescheduled Annual General Meeting on December 4th, 2022 at 1:30PM. This AGM will be held both at the Smitty’s restaurant in Selkirk, as well as on Zoom for those who are not able to attend in person.

At and following the last meeting (November 20th) the LWWG received much feedback from members asking to have the AGM rescheduled in an attempt to meet in person and further discuss the selling off of old editions of the Voices journal and closing down of group operations.

Among discussions at the executive meeting on November 20th included:

  • Interest in membership over the past year, but lack of executives to manage group and publish Voices journal.
  • The mailing out of physical contributor copies.
         * contributors will be contacted for address details
  • In an effort to sell remaining inventory, back issues will be reduced to a price of $5 each with the seller keeping $2. The LWWG cannot remain open and sell books.
  • Some meeting attendees suggested remaining on hiatus for a second year without collecting memberships or publishing any editions of Voices to see if a new direction and/or executives will emerge. Further discussion about this will take place sometime during the next year.
  • Any memberships for the year 2022 will be refunded and website & treasury operations will continue as normal to allow for inventory blowout and reevaluation.

To read the full details of discussion, please see the full meeting minutes on the LWWG website.


We will be holding this AGM on Zoom as well at the link provided below.

Where Did Your Writing Journey Begin?

Gosh, I have been writing as long as I can remember – poems, songs, stories. There was one Christmas as a child where I regaled family and friends with an illustrated story about how Santa Claus and the elves would be affected by the then-impending Free Trade Agreement.

What Do You Like To Do When You’re Not Writing?

Music is my soul, so I’m often practicing, composing, or recording. I also have fun hosting a weekly radio show, and I have developed a love of the early morning walk in nature.

Are There Any Rituals You Must Perform Before You Can Start Writing?

Not really. I suppose I might have a cup of coffee with me but even that’s not a rule. I just sit and do, whether it’s on the couch, on the patio, or in a coffee shop!

What Has Influenced You Most As A Writer?

I think the desire to inspire and teach is the biggest driver for me. I’m not really concerned with self-expressions or whether people understand me as a individual, but if I can help people understand the world or themselves in some way (hopefully while making them laugh in the process), I’m a happy camper! I can’t say I have any role models, per se, but, come on. Who wouldn’t want to write the next Harry Potter series? 🙂

Do You Have Any Advice For Other Writers?

Just spend time writing. Don’t worry about what actually comes out of you or judge it as good or bad. You can sort things out later on. Try not to censor yourself and just write!

    The Silver Veil by Lary Haynes

    The Silver Veil

    A pickpocket from the city streets of North America, a brother and sister orphaned by civil war in the Middle East, and two mutts with special communicative powers find themselves thrown together into an Alternate Dimension called Linkenland.

    When Rahjee, the young brother, becomes separated and lost in the mountainous Area of Whytenwhyte, with only a wolf pack for company, his sister Sasha and her new friends, Hart, Midas and Chico, must find him without losing their life “Sparks.” Their journey turns into one incredible adventure after another, taking them through huge open grasslands filled with sunshine, only to be followed by burning hot barren plains and steamy bogs full of life-threatening creatures. Along the way, the team encounters the friendly services of a half-human, half artificial named Dweebs, who helps them in their quest and shows them how to get back home to Linkenland.

    Their compelling story is one of overcoming hardships with friendship and working together as a team to ensure their survival. It’s the first of a series written for readers of all ages.
