CWWR 336 True to Life: Writing Your Own Story

Course series
Communication & Design Program Area

Duration: 25 Hours
Fee: $462.88* (Payment in full is required at time of enrolment; HST Included.)

Adventure, turbulence, joy: we all contain a universe of stories. Is it time for you to get started, or restarted, in putting your personal narratives on paper? This relaxed, supportive workshop will help you find the tales you want to tell and the craft and technique to make them compelling to read, whether as memoir, personal essay, or a beginning exploration. Each week students are given a choice of topics and asked to bring in a short piece of new writing. The instructor provides encouragement, structure, and practical feedback to help students discover and hone their unique voices. Learn how to dig deep and stay on track; how to cut, sharpen and polish; and where to send the work you want to share with the world.

Note: Instructor: Beth Kaplan
