Next Step in Creative Writing course, Wednesday evenings, July 2 – Aug 19, in Burlington

The Next Step in Creative Writing
 ~ Time to take a step up!
Summer session

Wednesday evenings, 6:45 – 9:00 p.m.
July 2 – August 19, 2014 
First readings emailed June 25
Appleby United Church, 4407 Spruce Ave, Burlington, Ontario (Map here.)

Note: “Intensive Creative Writing,” a similar but slightly more demanding course will be held Wednesday afternoons, July 2 to Aug 19 at Appleby United Church. Details here. To register, email brianhenry@sympatico.ca

The Next Step in Creative Writing will challenge you to take a step up in your writing.  Over the eight weeks of classes, you’ll be asked to bring in three or 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.
