Intensive Creative Writing course, Wed evenings, Apr 20 – June 15, Mississauga, Ontario

First set of readings distributed by email April 20.
Classes run Wednesday evenings, 6:45 – 9:00 p.m.
April 27 to June 15
Sheridan United Church, 2501 Truscott Drive, Mississauga (Map here.)

This course is for people who are working on their own writing. The format is similar to the "Intermediate" and "Extreme" courses: Over the eight classes, you’ll be asked to 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. You bring whatever you want to work on.

Besides critiquing pieces, I'll also be giving short lectures at the start of each class, addressing 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: $132.74 plus 13% hst = $150
Advance registration only. These courses usually fill up, so enroll early to avoid disappointment.
