Frequently Asked Questions

Are there ID or minimum age requirements for the workshops?
The workshops are designed for teens aged 13 - 18 or so...basically anyone going into grade 9 in the fall or anyone who just graduated high school. Exceptions can be made, however, so please contact me to discuss.


I'm really interested in victorian stories but I don't see that listed in the workshops. Can I still participate?
YES! The General Fiction workshop would probably be the best fit, or the Genre Fiction. We are super flexible :)


What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
The #7 and the #4 and O-train all serve Carleton University. There is also parking available for those who drive, but unfortunately, you have to pay for that.


Will we be going outside at all?
Sure! No one wants to be stuck inside too long on a nice day, so we have breaks and if we can, we can even walk over to the canal for some workshopping in the great outdoors.


What can I bring into the workshop?
Bring any stories or poems or ideas you're working on. If you haven't started anything yet, that's okay because we'll be generating all lkinds of ideas. You will have an awesome piece of work by the end of the workshop. Bring your laptop or writing pad. Bring your enthusiasm!


Do I need to bring snacks?
You should bring a water bottle and any snacks you want, although you can purchase food on campus (it's a bit expensive though).


How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Send me an email at david.hamilton@carleton.ca


What's the refund policy?
If, after the first evening, you really don't want to have your story published, then I will refund your money MINUS $10 to cover my time.


Are the facilitators police-checked?
Absolutely! I (David Hamilton) have been police checked through my classes with the OCDSB and through umpiring little league baseball.


I can't make the workshops but I have a story already that I'd like to include in the publication. Can I just do that?
I normally charge $250 to professionally edit a story or series of poems up to 5,000 words. So if want to include your work but cannot participate, email me and we can discuss doing this for a fee.
