EventsCreative Writing with Style

This event has already occurred.


This course will teach the tools (not rules!) of style to help elevate your creative writing. Participants will learn some of the principles of writing style and how they can help unlock your creativity and free up your writing practice. Learn all about what creative style is, and how to recognize and think about it as you read and write.

Writer-in-Residence, Andrew Battershill, has designed this 8-session workshop to teach emerging writers how to control and refine their writing by manipulating some of the fundamental elements of style: word choice, tone and form. Participants can expect to lively, discussion-oriented lessons and lots of creative writing exercises. Please bring a pen and paper (or laptop) and come prepared to write.

The workshop series will culminate in a final public reading event on November 24 and samples of writing by all participants will be published in a chapbook. If you are interested in publishing and sharing some of your writing, generating new, creative ideas, and learning some fundamental lessons to take with you on your continued writing journey then this workshop is for you!

Intermediate English proficiency required.

For 15+. Maximum 15 participants.
