This course will challenge you to take a step up in your writing.  The format will be similar to the "Intensive" courses, but with less reading between classes each week, leaving you with more writing time. Over the twelve weeks of classes, you’ll be asked to bring in five pieces of your writing for detailed feedback (or at least four pieces for a ten-week course). 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.
Fee: 184.96 + 13% HST = 209
