10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Harcourt United Church, 87 Dean Ave, Guelph (Map here.)

Whatever you're writing, fiction or nonfiction, readers will care about your story only if they care about your people. In this workshop, you'll learn techniques for creating fictional characters and depicting real people. You’ll learn how to breathe life into the page so that your characters start telling you how the story should go.

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing instructor for more than 25 years. But his proudest boast is that he's helped many of his students get published, including guest speaker Jean Rae Baxter…

Jean Rae Baxter has written six books. She's published two short story collections: A Twist of Malice and Scattered Light (Seraphim Press), three young adult historical novels, The Way Lies North, Broken Trail, and Freedom Bound (Ronsdale Press), and a literary murder mystery, Looking for Cardenio (Seraphim). Jean's books and short stories have won her many awards and critical recognition.
