FALL 2017 MEMOIR WRITING WORKSHOPS

(For RETREATS, click here.)

 

1-WEEK INTENSIVE (STRATFORD, ONTARIO):

This workshop is ideal for local writers wanting to kickstart or dive deeply into their writing.

Over the course of daily 3-hour sessions, participants will have a chance to workshop up to 5 pieces of writing or segments of a longer project. Work can be previously created or generated over the course of the week. The end of the intensive will be celebrated with a group lunch, a wrap-up session focussing on the next steps to take with your writing, and optional live readings. 

The final day of the intensive is also the first day of the Stratford Writers Festival (Oct 20-22) and everyone is encouraged to attend as many of these inspiring events as possible. If you are not local and would like to participate in a writing retreat which includes accommodation and meals, please see Stratford Writers Festival's Write Now Retreat.
