A coupla workshops I'm running shortly

I am offering two workshops early this year at This Ain't the Rosedale Library, 483 Church Street, in Toronto. There's More to Memoir than Truth is an expanded repeat of a very successful workshop I first offered in the fall. Get Your Hands on My Poem! is the first all-critiquing workshop I've led.

To register, call 416-929-9912. Prepayment is required.

There’s More to Memoir than Truth

Saturday, March 3, 10am-5pm (w/ 45-minute lunch break)
$75 includes materials & light snacks
Limited to 14 participants

This awesome workshop returns for a second round! Explore the forms and possibilities of memoir with acclaimed writer Stuart Ross. In this fast-moving (but relaxed!), hands-on workshop for writers both beginning and advanced, we’ll look at memoir through fiction, poetry, the postcard essay, and other forms. We’ll also tap into secrets, lies, and dreams, and compare your voice to that of a potato chip. Bring along your sense of adventure for this session.

Get Your Hands on My Poem! A Critiquing Workshop

Thursdays, February 15 & 22, March 1, 8, 15 & 22, 7-9pm
$145 ($20 discount until January 20)
Limited to 10 participants

Stuart Ross, who is wary of critiquing workshops, leads a critiquing workshop. These sessions offer poets experience in honing, shaping, and self-editing their work, as well as the valuable opportunity to witness how their work is read by others. Participants will also be exposed to a broad range of styles, forms, and approaches. Each session includes a quick writing project, plus readings from relevant international poets. This workshop is suitable for those who have already produced a heap of poems.
