                                 CREATIVE WRITING WORKSHOP

 

A great way to start writing, jump start your stalled writing, or push your writing to a new level ...

Join a new session of an ongoing creative writing workshop, which has evolved out of a University of Toronto Creative Writing course.

Through a series of writing prompts, we'll explore various components of narrative prose -- exposition, dialogue, point-of-view, style, etc.  Each week participants write a short, assigned piece which we'll read and discuss in class.  These exercizes are designed to spark the imagination and hone the craft of writing, and are suitable to writers of fiction and memoir, beginning writers or those further along.

The workshop in general is conceived as a supportive, illuminating, entertaining and provocative environment in which to develop narrative skills and ideas.  Our discussion of writing also includes examples from great classic and contemporary writers.

THe instructor, Roxanne Snider, is a published writer with an MFA in creative writing, who has taught at the UNiversity of Toronto's Continuing Education.  Her teachers include Barbara Gowdy, Amy Hemplel and Sven Birkerts.

 

Time and Dates:  7-9pm, eight Thursdays, starting October 15

Location:  Miles Nadal JCC, Bloor and Spadina

Cost:  $275.
