"Writng with Style," Saturday, September 25, Hamilton

With guest author Jean Rae Baxter
Saturday, September 25
10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Volunteer Hamilton, 267 King St. E, Hamilton
(Be careful! Bizarrely, there are two places in Hamilton with the address "267 King St. E." We're meeting at the 267 King St E in downtown Hamilton, between Wellington St. N. and Ferguson Ave. Map here.)

If you do any kind of creative writing, fiction or non-fiction, this workshop is for you. We’ll tackle the nitty-gritty of putting words on paper in a way that will grip the reader’s imagination. You'll learn how to avoid common errors that drain the life from your prose. And you'll discover how to make your writing more vivid, more elegant and more powerful.

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing teacher for more than 25 years. He has helped many of his students get published, including guest speaker Jean-Rae Baxter…

Jean Rae Baxter has published a short story collection, A Twist of Malice (Seraphim Press), a young adult historical novel, The Way Lies North (Ronsdale Press), and a literary murder mystery, Looking for Cardenio (Seraphim). Jean will publish a sequel to The Way Lies North next year, and a second short story collection (for adults) is also in the works.

Fee: $38.94 + hst = $44 paid in advance
or $42.48 + hst = $48 if you wait to pay at the door
