Appleby United Church, 4407 Spruce Ave, Burlington, Ontario (Map here.)
The Next Step in Creative Writing will challenge you to take a step up in your writing. Over the eight weeks of classes, you’ll be asked to bring in three or four 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.
In addition to learning how to critique your own writing and receiving constructive suggestions about your writing, you’ll discover that your greatest growth as a writer comes from critiquing other people’s work and form seeing how your classmates approach and critique a piece of writing and how they write and re-write. This is the course you want if you're ready to seriously improve your writing.
