March 27 – June 12, 2014
First readings emailed March 20
Unity Church, Unit 8, 3075 Ridgeway Drive, Mississauga, Ontario
(Don’t look for a steeple. Unity Church is a unit in a business mall and looks nothing like a church. Map here.)

Note:  "The Next Step in Creative Writing" is alss offered Tuesday evenings in Burlington (see here), and Thursday evenings in Georgetown. A similar course, Intensive Creative Writing,  is offered Wednesday afternoons in Burlington and Wednesday evenings in Mississauga (see here). For information or to register, email

This course will challenge you to take a step up in your writing.  The format will be similar to the "Intensive" courses, but with less reading between classes each week, leaving you with more writing time.

Over the twelve 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.

Besides critiquing pieces, the instructor will give short lectures at the start of each class, addressing the needs of the group.

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 challenging course, but extremely rewarding.

Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing teacher for more than 25 years. He teaches at Ryerson University and has led writing workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia to Charlottetown. But his proudest boast is that he's helped many of his students get published.

Fee: 184.96 + 13% hst = 209.  Payment in advance by mail or e-transfer.
