Intensive Creative Writing course, Wed evenings, Jan 22 – March 12, Mississauga

Intensive Creative Writing
An adventure in creative growth
Winter session

Wednesday evenings, Jan 22 – March 12, 2014
6:45 to 9:00 p.m.
First set or readings emailed Jan 15
Sheridan United Church, 2501 Truscott Drive, Mississauga, Ontario (Map here.)

Note: A similar course, "The Next Step in Creative Writing," is offered Thursday afternoons in Mississauga (here), and Thursday evenings in Georgetown (here).

This course is for people who have done a course or two before and are working on their own writing. Over the eight classes, you’ll be asked to bring in four 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.

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: $132.74 + 13% hst = $150.  Payment in advance by mail or e-transfer.
