Next Step and Intermediate Creative Writing courses starting soon

Spring courses starting soon!
Note: For the Next Step and Intermediate writing classes, I start making up the schedule a few weeks before the course actually begins. This means I’ll be starting to schedule when participants are due to present pieces soon, so if you think you may be interested in one of these courses, please let me know. ~ Brian

The Next Step in Creative Writing
10 weeks of creative growth
Offered in two locales:
Wednesday evenings, 6:45 – 9:00 p.m.
April 13 – June 15.
First pieces emailed for reading April 6
Appleby United Church, 4407 Spruce Ave, Burlington, Ontario. (Map here.)

April 21 – June 23. First pieces emailed for reading April 14
St Cuthbert's Anglican Church, 1541 Oakhill Drive, Oakville, 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.
In addition to learning how to critique your own writing and receiving constructive suggestions about your writing, you’ll discover that your greatest growth as a writer comes from critiquing other people’s work and form seeing how your classmates approach and critique a piece of writing and how they write and re-write. This is the course you want if you're ready to seriously improve your writing.

This 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 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. 
In addition to learning how to critique your own writing 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.
