#NoirBarYYC 2015 schedule

Coffin Hop Press is proud to host the quarterly #NOIRBARYYC event in Calgary, AB

Here  is the tentative schedule for this year, starting with the next event on JANUARY 27 at 7PM

NBYYC_Flyer JAN2015

 

 

 

 

The April event will be in conjunction with the Crime Writers of Canada in announcing the Arthur Ellis Awards shortlist, and the location may change from Dickens Pub, depending on availability.

The August event, also involving the CWC, will be a huge throwdown at the When Words Collide convention (after hours and NOT requiring a convention membership) hopefully to include many of our out-of-town pals from across North America.

October and December events will be finalized closer to the date.

Also stay tuned for news on a Coffin Hop Press project involving and promoting the #NoirBarYYC collective, to be announced at the January event before being announced here on the site and on social media.

Find out more on our #NOIRBARYYC page.
