Writing Young Adult Fantasy Course at U of T

Share |

If anyone out there is interested in learning the ins and out(there)s of writing fantasy aimed at the amorphous reader we sometimes call “the young adult,” then I’m your man!

Starting on Monday, I’ll be instructing a night-course at U of T appropriately called “Writing Young Adult Fantasy”. If anyone is interested, there’s still time to enroll. You can be certain I’ll be slavering everything I know all over the genre — structure, characterization, thematic drive, naturalism versus narrative in dialogue…the list goes on and on. I swear.

Best of all, it’ll take place inside the swanky Continuing Education building, designed by Raymond Moriyama — St. George, just south of Bloor.
