12 weeks of creative growth
Tuesday afternoons, 12:30 – 2:45 p.m.
Sept 27 to Dec 13
Unity Church, 3075 Ridegeway Drive, Unit 8, Mississauga (Map here.)
(In a business mall on the west side of Ridgeway, just north of Dundas St, between Hwy 403 & Winston Churchill Blvd.)

This course is for people who are working on their own writing. The format is similar to the "Intensive" and "Extreme" courses: Over the twelve classes, you’ll be asked to bring in six 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, the instructor will give 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.

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 get published.

Fee: $170.80 plus 13% hst = $193 (or if you're starting a week late, the fee will be $177)

Advance registration only. These courses usually fill up, so enroll early to avoid disappointment.
