Intermediate Creative Writing, Wednesday evenings, April 23 – June 25, in Burlington

Intermediate Creative Writing
10 weeks of creative growth
Wednesday evenings, 6:45 – 9:00 p.m.
April 23 – June 25, 2014 
First readings emailed April 16
Appleby United Church, 4407 Spruce Ave, Burlington, Ontario (Map here.)

This course will challenge you to take a step up in your writing.  Over the ten weeks of classes, you’ll be asked to bring in four or five 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.
