An in-person workshop: Raising the Stakes, Saturday, Sept 26, in Burlington

Raising the Stakes
How to increase your story's tension 
Saturday, September 26, 2020
1:00 – 4:30 p.m.
St. Elizabeth Anglican Church, 5324 Bromley Rd, Burlington, Ontario (Map here)

Ever stayed up all night reading a book? In this workshop, you’ll learn you how to build that kind of tension.  And we'll help you put into practice the techniques professionals use – on every page and in every kind of story – to create drama and raise the tension in each scene they write.

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 Charlottetown. But his proudest boast is that he has helped many of his students get their first book published and launch their careers as authors. 
See reviews of Brian's classes and workshops here.

Note: To allow physical distancing, we will of necessity be a small group and enjoy ample opportunity for interaction. Participants are asked to wear a mask, and I'll bring the hand sanitizer.

Fee: $40.71+ hst = $46 paid in advance 
or $44.25 + hst = $50 if you wait to pay at the door
