Weekly classes this fall in Burlington: The Next Step in Creative Writing and two offerings of Intensive Creative Writing

The Next Step in Creative Writing
10 weeks of creative growth
Fall session
Wednesday evenings, 6:45 – 9:00 p.m.
Sept 30 – Dec 2,
2015
Appleby United Church, 4407 Spruce Ave, Burlington, Ontario (Map here.)
Note: The Next Step in Creative Writing will also be offered on Thursday evenings in Georgetown. For details or to register, email me at: brianhenry@sympatico.ca
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.

Fee: 176.11 + 13% hst = 199.

Note: I start working out the schedule for when participants are due to bring in a piece of their writing three weeks before our start date, so please try to sign up by September 9. In any case, these courses fill up, so enroll early to avoid disappointment. ~ Brian

This Intensive course isn't for beginners; it's for people who have been writing for a while or who have done a course or two before and are working on their own projects. Over the twelve weeks of classes, you’ll be asked to bring in six 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 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 challenging course, but extremely rewarding.
