The Writers' Exchange

6 weeks, Tuesdays, 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. (Autumn 2021)

Do you enjoy writing but lack an audience for your writing, other than the cat? Would you like to meet other writers for stimulation and support? If so, consider the TMI Writers’ Exchange.

We will meet weekly for six weeks to read our writing and get gentle feedback from fellow scribes. Readings are limited to 10 minutes and may include journalism, memoir, short stories, or books. One of the hardest things about writing is sticking with it when you don’t have a deadline. By joining our group, you will have an incentive to come up with new material to delight and inform the other members each week.

Literary Excursions

12 sessions, the last Monday of each month, 1:30 to 3:00 p.m.

TMI is offering a unique and eclectic reading-discussion experience. This program is a re-imagining of last year’s “Book Circle.” We will include both fiction and nonfiction works. In some months we will invite all participants to speak about their favourite books by a prolific author; in others we will focus on one notable work by a well-known author. The event will take place in the last week of each month. Registrations will be for individual sessions, at a cost of $10 per session to cover administrative costs. Please register early, as places will be limited. 

Self-Appropriation : invitation à l’expérience et à l’affirmation personnelle de soi à la lumière de la pensée de Bernard Lonergan

12 sessions, every other Wednesday, 19h00 - 21h00
**cours bilingue | en ligne**

Since TMI’s founding in 1945, when Bernard Lonergan offered the course “Truth and Reality,” his teachings have been a guiding force at the Institute. This year, TMI will be offering a 12-session bilingual seminar aimed at introducing Lonergan’s thought through personal exercises of self-appropriation. 

Bernard Lonergan présente son grand livre, Insight, comme « une invitation à un acte personnel décisif »... « il s'agit de découvrir, de cerner les activités de sa propre intelligence (et) de se familiariser avec elles… ». Ce cours sera axé avant tout sur le vécu des participants. Les lectures seront tirées d’autobiographies qui illustrent des actes concrets qui permettront aux participants de repérer des actes semblables dans leur propre expérience.
