The Next Step in Creative Writing class, Sept 24 – Dec 3, in Georgetown

The Next Step in Creative Writing
11 weeks of creative growth
Fall session
Thursday evenings, 6:45 – 9:00 p.m.
Sept 24 – Dec 3, 2015
St. Alban's Church, 537 Main Street, Georgetown, Ontario (In the village of Glen Williams (Map here.)

The Next Step in Creative Writing will challenge you to take a step up in your writing. Over the ten weeks of classes, you’ll be asked to bring in 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 class, addressing the needs of the group, and 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 supportive group and a rewarding class.

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing instructor for more than 25 years. He publishes Quick Brown Fox, Canada’s most popular blog for writers, 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 and launch their careers as authors.

  1. Hi Brian, I am interested in registering for this course. I emailed you twice but haven't heard back -- perhaps my emails have gone into your spam folder. Do you have any space left?

    1. Sorry, I literally just received your email. Thank you! I'm looking forward to participating.

  2. Christine, I'm looking forward to seeing you there.
