The Year-long Workshop to Write Your Novel or Memoir

Bi-Weekly Workshop Sessions

Bi-weekly workshops (two and a half hours in length) feature writing-on-the-spot exercises, writing new material, group reading and positive feedback, as well as instruction on the crucial elements of story and discussions about mutual areas of interest.

Although new writing is a component of many of the workshops, most of the writing required to achieve the biweekly targets will need to be completed at home between the workshops.

Participants are welcome to use their preferred writing method in class. Pen and paper or laptops are welcomed, however since we will be working together in ZOOM rooms it is important to have a stable internet signal and good audio and video available on your computer, tablet or cellphone.
