Next Step, Intermediate, and Intensive creative writing courses starting soon!

For these courses, I start working out the schedule for when participants are due to bring in a piece of their writing three weeks before the first class, so for the winter courses, please try to sign up before the new year! In any case, these courses fill up, so enroll early to avoid disappointment. ~ Brian

The Next Step in Creative Writing
10 weeks of creative growth
Wednesday evenings, 6:45 – 9:00 p.m.
Jan 20 – March 30 (no class March 16)
Appleby United Church, 4407 Spruce Ave, Burlington, Ontario (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.
