Writing and Revising workshop, Saturday, Jan 31, 2015, Oakville

“Writing and Revising”
Saturday, January 31, 2015
10:00 – 3:30 p.m.
Oakville Central Library, 
120 Navy Street, Oakville, Ontario
(Parking is around the back of the library and then up the hill a bit on Water Street, across from the Canoe Club. Map here.)

If you want to refine your story-telling skills and cut the time you will need to spend editing, this workshop is for you. You'll learn how to step back from a manuscript in order to find – and fix – flaws in your plot, structure, characterization and style. You'll learn how to rethink, rework and rewrite so that your manuscript will live up to your vision.

Special option: Participants are invited to bring a piece of their own writing (though you don’t have to!) If you do bring a piece, bring 3 copies of something short (1,000 words absolute maximum, though 750 words works better).

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing teacher for more than 25 years. He teaches creative writing at Ryerson University and has led workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia to Charlottetown. But his proudest boast is that he has helped many of his students get their first book published.
