Spring is coming! Time to sign up for my Level 1 creative writing workshop with the International Writers’ Collective. We start on 21 April 2021 and end on 14 June 2021 with a one week break on 5 May.
Not yet vaccinated? No worries! This spring writing workshop is online.
Here’s what that looks like. We meet virtually one hour each week to discuss a sample text and the craft elements embedded in it. By craft elements, I mean writing techniques like narrator, point of view, tone, mood and description. I’ll ask you to try your hand at applying those techniques by writing a two page exercise each week. You upload your work and you will receive feedback (critique) from some of your fellow students and, of course, me. Over the course of our 8 week winter term, you’ll learn to read like a writer and, as a result, to edit your own work.
Level 1 is for aspiring writers, including those who’ve never before set pen to paper. It can also be useful to experienced writers in search of formal instruction. For fiction writers and poets alike!
Please note that advance registration is required. Places fill up quickly. Sign up soon!
