Workshops for Writers

Hi OB-ers,

Several students and others have been asking me for awhile if I'd lead private writing workshops. While I am loathe to hustle students, I love teaching and am always down for more of it, time permitting.

So, please check out the fresh workshop environment I've put together, The Writers' Circle. It's where invited participants come to workshop and deepen their fiction, screenplays, essays, memoirs, etc.

Each session will focus on a different area of our work: story, character, setting, dialogue, rewriting, events, present circumstances, rhythm, and so on.

Writers bring their work and we will workshop it, usually with an eye to that week's topic.

I will also offer feedback on material, if you wish.

Enrolment is for 8 week 'terms" at a downtown TO location.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email me at or on the Writers' Circle web page.
