When Marlan Siren was in Grade 12 she won a national essay-writing contest. Earlier this month she won another – and a big one – the short story contest at the Alice Munro Festival in Wingam. Siren, who wrote Plates Don't Fall, was the first-place winner of the Alice Munro 13th annual Literary Short Story Competition for Emerging Writers. The competition is an annual opportunity for writers to explore the short story, a literary art form made popular by 2013 Nobel laureate Alice Munro.
With “a crash of drums, and a flash of light,” Drayton Entertainment’s eagerly anticipated production of Joseph and Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is set to launch the award‐ winning theatre organization’s 2017 Season at the Huron Country Playhouse in Grand Bend. The smash‐hit musical runs June 7 to June 24th. “ Joseph is family entertainment at its best,” says Alex Mustakas, Artistic Director of Drayton Entertainment.
Go, go, go see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Now. Huron Country Playhouse has kicked off its 2017 season with a lively production of the Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice’s musical and it is entertaining, to say the least. As the Bible story goes, Joseph’s 11 brothers are not so fond of their brother Joseph and become really jealous after their father presents Joseph with a dazzling coat of many colours.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
