* Starts JANUARY 2014 This 8 week course in Life-Writing has two possible paths: one is for those who are currently at work on a project and would most like to continue with that; and two is for those who are either new to life-writing or don't have a particular project in mind, and would most like to explore elements of this form of writing (such as core emotion--the "emotional experience that preoccupies the writer"--and developing both distance and sympathy with your voice). Whatever path one chooses, there will be a schedule set for three submissions--so three sections from your work-in-progress, or three assignments from the readings. Email instructor firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.Continue...

Inclusion is dependent on sending a sample of your writing to the instructor. The next session will begin in January, and run through to May. Email email@example.com with any questions.Continue...
Writing for Children - JANUARY 2014 session
Picturebooks, early readers, short stories, chapter books. This course is for those who would like to become more familiar with the genres of short works for children, as well as those writers who have some experience in one or more of the genres.Continue...
After 15 years of teaching, including 6 years of teaching in the UBC creative writing program, and a variety of other places, with a full spectrum of writing and commitment interests/levels, I know that the elements I most enjoy in teaching are the writer-mentor-to-writer work and the community that grows from writing workshops--writers coming together. So welcome to WritersWebWorkshop!
A new session of Novel Writing will began in January. The next session of Life Writing and Writing for Children will begin in the New Year, too.
Please take a look at "About Us" to have an idea of what is involved in being part of a workshop. Workshops are highly interactive and do require time and energy...but whatever you do put in does comes back in inspiration and energy!
