How to Make Yourself Write
A creativity workout
Saturday, July 21, 2012
10:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
The Harrop Restaurant, 345 Steeles Avenue East, Milton, Ontario
(Just south of Hwy 401, just east of Regional Road 25, aka Martin Street. Map here.)

Let's get motivated! This workshop is designed to help you find the time and the inspiration to write. No more staring at a blank screen. Come to this workshop and give yourself a kick-start, and then learn how to keep going. This creativity workout will get your words flowing and help you make the breakthrough into the next level of writing.

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing teacher for more than 25 years. He teaches creative writing at Ryerson University 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 their first book published.

For this workshop, we have a spectacular setting. The Harrop Restaurant is located in a restored century old stone house on the grounds of what was once a dairy farm. The Gallery Upstairs features stunning Canadian art by Tina Newlove, Robert Bateman, Ford Smith and many others. The outbuildings feature more art and a framing warehouse. Our workshop will be in the comfy and air-conditioned back room of the restaurant.
A box lunch is available for about $10 0r $12. To see the menu and pre-order, contact Hedi at

Or, as usual, participants may go out to any of the fast food venues in the area or may brown-bag it (though, no outside food in the restaurant please).

Fee: $41.59 +  hst = $47 paid in advance
or $44.25 + hst = $50 if you wait to pay at the door
We have limited space for this workshop, so seating will be on a first-paid, first seated basis.
