Writing and Revising workshop, Saturday, July 23, in Kitchener

Writing and Revising
Saturday, July 23, 2016
1:00 – 4:30 p.m.
Forest Heights Public Library, 251 Fischer-Hallman Road, Kitchener, Ontario (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 the first 500 – 1,000 words of one of their 
pieces of writing. You don’t need to bring anything, but if you do, three copies could be helpful.

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 Saint John. But his proudest boast is that he has helped many of his students get published. You can read reviews of Brian's courses and workshops here

  1. Hi Brian:
    I love your workshops. I will try to make it on July 23rd and pay at the door.
    Also, since I'm a self published author, I would be happy to speak about the challenges involved in self-publishing. I know you're not a big supporter of writers going that route but it is an option. Let me know if you might consider me.
