This 1-week intensive is for writers wanting to kickstart or dive deeply into their writing.
Over the course of daily 3-hour sessions (Oct 15-20), 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. You may register here.
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.
Participants are responsible for their own accommodation and meals (except the final day's lunch). If you are interested in the Write Now Retreat (which includes accommodation and all meals, click here.)
Thursdays, 4 - 6pm (Eastern Standard Time), 26 October - 30 November, 2017

As part of the Lorenzo Reading Series at the University of New Brunswick, Alison will be doing reading from Confessions of a Fairy's Daughter followed by a Q&A.
A performance of the Confessions of a Fairy's Daughter solo play will take place the following evening at the Imperial Theatre in Saint John.
Join Alison Wearing to explore the lyricism and rhythm of literature through the body. No formal singing or dance experience required, though a willingness to participate in both is essential! Texts will be supplied and created within the workshop. This promises to be a fun and engaging event. Please see the Festival website for details.
