Creative Non-fiction Writing Workshop


Course Description

Are you an aspiring writer? If you have stories to share and are curious about the people and places you encounter, we’d love to have you join us in the Creative Non-Fiction Writing Workshop.

Effective writing is both an art and a craft that can be continually developed. This course will give you the opportunity to stretch your writing “wings” by exploring many styles and genres of writing. Through weekly short assignments, readings, and in-class discussions, we will help you develop the skills of observing, thinking, organizing your thoughts, expressing them in clear prose, and practising the habits of good writers.

The dynamic world of creative non-fiction offers myriad possibilities. We will explore forms such as the profile and the arts review, as well as travel writing, culminating in a personal opinion essay.

Register early. The maximum number of students is 15.

Please note, that all courses have a maximum enrollment of 15 students.

Priority is given to students who pay upon registration.

Please note that we do not allow participants to audit courses for free.
