Description

Lisa Pasold will be offering a 3 hour workshop entitled 'Write Every Day'. She will lead a discussion about how the evolution of daily writing practice, be it diary or fiction, poetry or quickly jotted observation. She will discuss how a daily practice is an anchor, creatively and spiritually, and how material from daily writing - interior, messy, private - can be shaped into crafted public work. The workshop includes a variety of writing prompts and approaches, wrapping up with a practical discussion of how each person can develop a new strategy to find time for daily writing.

This workshop can help the new writer, the emerging writer who may not have developed a daily writing strategy, yet, as well as established writers who may have lost focus and need to re-establish this very important skill.

Lisa is the host and co-writer of Discovery World’s travel program “Paris Next Stop.” Her first book of poetry, "Weave", was called “a masterpiece” by Geist Magazine; her second book "A Bad Year for Journalists" was nominated for an Alberta Book Award and turned into a theatre piece the following year, premiering in Toronto.
