Intensive Creative Writing weekly course, March 27 – June 12, in Mississauga


“Intensive Creative Writing”
~ An adventure in creative growth ~
Wednesday nights, March 27 – June 12, 2013
6:45 – 9:00 p.m.
First set of readings emailed March 20
Sheridan United Church, 2501 Truscott Drive, Mississauga, Ontario (Map here.)

This course is for people who are working on their own writing. Over the twelve classes, you’ll be asked to bring in six 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 talks 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.

Instructor 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.

Advance registration only. These courses usually fill up, so enroll early to avoid disappointment.

Fee: $181.42 plus 13% hst = $205 Payment in advance by mail or Interac.
