Great workshops coming soon: Writing Conflict, in Oakville, and Raising the Stakes, in Toronto and Kitchener


Writing Conflict: Fight scenes, Dialogue scenes & Love scenes
RESCHEDULED TO FEB 8

new FEB 8 from 1:00 – 4:30 p.m.
St. Cuthbert’s Anglican Church, 1541 Oakhill Drive, Oakville, Ontario (Map here.)
This workshop is geared to both beginners and more experienced writers.  We look at the most important part of all stories whether fictional or true: the fully dramatized scene. You’ll learn how to write great dialogue and how to mix it with your narrative so that the interaction between your characters comes alive. 
As a bonus we'll look at how to create the most difficult scenes of all: the fight scene, the dialogue scene and the love scene. Best yet, you'll learn some of the successful tricks of the trade so that you'll never write a lifeless scene again.
Fee: $37.17 + hst = $42 paid in advance or $39.82 + hst = $45 at the door
