“Intermediate Creative Writing,” Sept 15 – Dec 8, Mississauga
12 weeks of creativity, inspiration and great feedback on your writing
Wednesday evening, 7:45 – 9:00 p.m.
September 15 – December 8
(Note: We begin by email Sept 15, but the first class is Sept 22)
Sheridan United Church, 2501 Truscott Drive, Mississauga
Note: This class is currently full. But I'm offering the same course on Monday evenings. For details see here. I'm offering a very similar course on Wednesday afternoons. Details here. And I'm offering a beginner's class on Tuesday afternoons in Burlington. Details here. For information about all of my creative writing courses and writing workshops, see here.
This Intermediate course is for people who are working on their own writing. You’ll be asked to bring in 6 pieces of your writing for detailed feedback. All our pieces may be from the same work, such as a novel in progress, or they may be stand alone pieces. You're invited to bring whatever you want to work on.
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.
Instructor Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing teacher for more than 25 years. He teaches at Ryerson University and has led writing workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia to Charlottetown. But his proudest boast is that he’s helped many of his students begin their careers as accomplished authors.
Fee: $170.80 plus 13% hst = $193

Note: The old, 8-week version of this course was called “Extreme Creative Writing,” but that name seemed excessive.
