This year, I'll be offering manuscript consultations to two people working on book-length memoir projects, as well as a workshop called Page to Stage: presenting your work in public with confidence, authenticity and joy.

This is an opportunity to devote yourself to your writing for one full week, learn the essentials of memoir writing, and develop a daily writing practice to take with you when the workshop is over. Writing can be previously created or generated over the course of the week. You may register here.

The final day of the intensive is also the first day of the Stratford Writers Festival (October 20-22) and everyone is encouraged to attend as many of these inspiring events as possible.
