Intermediate Creative Writing class, Wednesday evenings, Sept 14 – Nov 30, in Burlington

Intermediate Creative Writing
10 weeks of creative growth
Wednesday evenings, 6:45 – 9:00 p.m.
Course begins by email Sept 14
Classes run Sept 21 – Nov 30 (though we'll extend the course by a week if it fills up).
Appleby United Church, 4407 Spruce Ave, Burlington, Ontario (Map here.)

This course isn't for beginners; it's for people who have been writing for a while or who have done a class or two before and are working on their own projects. Over the length of the course, 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.

Instructor 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 published.
