Just announced today: the Whistler Writers Group offers a 6 week course for Never-Ever Writers, Wednesdays, from January 28 2009.
Think of it as a bunnyhill for aspiring creatives. Sharpen your pencils, and away you go.
Kind and patient instructor, Rebecca Wood Barrett, will deliver a weekly lecture on the craft of writing, give brief assignments in class, followed by homework assignments that will be brought back to the group to workshop so participants can learn how to critique effectively. Roundtable discussions on the practical aspects of being a writer are also on the agenda.
Rebecca has a one year old son, so she’s adept at fitting a lot of productivity into a short window of time. She’s also a published short story writer, an award-winning short filmmaker, a TV producer with Resort TV, winner of the 2008 Postcard Jam, and a soon-to-be graduate from UBC’s MFA program. Trust me, you’ll be in good hands.
Feeding the Seed : Growing the Brand New Writer starts at Spring Creek Elementary School on Wednesday, January 28. The 6 week course is offered for $120. Spaces are limited. Sign up soon. There’s a whole mountain of terrain awaiting you. http://www.theviciouscircle.ca
