Thom Leads a Workshop: Writing as Connection at Tightrope Books, Jan. 29, 2011

Me, leading at TightRope Books, Jan. 29, 2011, $50 (all proceeds support Tightrope)

Participants will learn techniques to notice plot, structure, and the emergence in their work of meaty/”sexy”/provocative ideas. If approached delicately, these literary elements reveal themselves to be unique to each writer. Using our craft to reveal this authenticity is one of the most exciting benefits of writing. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the connections being made & broken in their work.

Bring:
1. a piece of writing to work on, or writers can create a new one in the session;
2. paper, pens, computer, etc.

Prerequisite: a spirit ready to explore, ages 14+.

The views expressed in the Writer-in-Residence blogs are those held by the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of Open Book: Toronto.
