About the Workshop

Do you have a story to tell?

This program will give women from other cultures the chance to work with a professional Canadian writer in a relaxed setting, to get some tips and hands-on experience telling their own stories in prose and poetry and to meet others who are interested in learning the craft of creative writing. Participants will share the ways that stories are told in their culture, work on oral storytelling skills, and build on their writing, story structure and editing skills.

The participants will also have the opportunity to experience live performance as they present their work to an audience at the completion of the program.

All levels welcome, though basic English writing skills are necessary.

This program is not an English language course. It is intended as a means to develop creative writing skills through practice.

There is no cost to attend, but space is limited so REGISTER SOON!
Childcare is available.
