Ever stayed up all night reading a book? In this workshop, you’ll learn you how to build that kind of tension.  And we'll help you put into practice the techniques professionals use – on every page and in every kind of story – to create drama and tension.

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing teacher for more than 25 years. He teaches at Ryerson University and has led workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia to Moncton. But his proudest boast is that he has helped many of his students get published, including our guest speaker Kelley Armstrong…

Kelley Armstrong lives in Aylmer, south of London, Ontario, with her husband and three children. She used to program computers and attend Brian Henry workshops. Now she writes international bestsellers. Kelley has hit the New York Time’s bestseller list with both her supernatural thrillers for adults and her urban fantasy for teens. 

Kelley's principal publishers are Random House Canada, Bantam U.S., and Warner in Britain. To date, she's published more than two dozen books, most recently 
Spellbound, a supernatural thriller for adults, and The Gathering, for teens. She's also writing a series of illustrated novellas with Subterranean Press. Check out Kelley's website here.
