"Writing & Revising," Peterborough, Saturday, October 23

The Canadian Authors Association, Peterborough, presents…
“Writing and Revising”
Saturday, October 23
10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Jackson Creek Residence
481 Reid Street, Peterborough
(South off Parkhill Rd W, north off Sherbrooke St, at the corner of Murray St. Map here.)

If you want to refine your story-writing skills and cut the time you will need to spend editing, this workshop is for you. You'll learn how to step back from a manuscript in order to find - and fix - flaws in your plot, structure, characterization and style. You'll learn how to rethink, rework and rewrite so that your manuscript will live up to your vision.

Special option: Participants are invited to bring a piece of their own writing (though you don’t have to!) If you do bring a piece, bring 2 copies of something short (1,000 words maximum, though 800 words or fewer is better).

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing instructo for more than 25 years. He teaches at Ryerson University and George Brown College and has led workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia to Charlottetown.  But his proudest boast is that he has helped many of his students get published.

Fee: $38.94 + 13% hst = $44 paid in advance
Or $42.48 + 13% hst = $48 if you wait to pay at the door
(Canadian Authors Assoc. members pay $40 in advancce; $48 at the door)
