"Intensive Creative Writing," April 21 - June 16, Mississauga

8 weeks of inspiration, creativity, & growth
Wednesday evenings, 6:45 - 9:00 p.m.
April 21 - June 16
(Note: We begin by email April 21, but the first class is April 28)
Sheridan United Church, , 2501 Truscott Drive, Mississauga  (Map here)

This course is for people who are working on their own writing. You need to have pieces to bring to class and you have to be prepared to read and give constructive comments on the pieces your classmates contribute.  During the 8 weeks of the course, you’ll bring in 4 pieces of your writing for detailed feedback. All your pieces may be from the same work, such as a novel in progress, or they may be stand alone pieces.

Besides critiquing pieces, I'll also be giving short lectures at the start of each class. I’ll focus on teaching how to critique a piece of writing, and I’ll address other topics on request and according to the needs of the group.

In addition to learning how to critique your own work and receiving constructive suggestions about your writing, you’ll discover that the greatest benefits come from seeing how your classmates approach and critique a piece of writing and how they write and re-write.

This is a challenging course, but extremely rewarding.

Fee: $133.33 plus gst = $140
