Event Details


 

This workshop will guide participants through the stylistic and technical elements that make a great piece of writing. It will draw heavily from the art and craft of narrative non-fiction, but will be relevant for anyone who wants to communicate more effectively through the written word.

Whether you want to write a memoir, a personal essay, a press release, a university paper, or a grant proposal, the nut of it is: How do you make your truth compelling to others?

Over the course of the workshop, we’ll cover shaping ideas; planning and organizing material; elements of storytelling; wordcraft and style; finding your voice; tough-love editing; and, finally, putting your work out there.

The workshop lasts 4 weeks. The registration fee covers all 4 sessions.

Organizer

Surplace Media

Surplace is a social enterprise in Montreal that blends together three things.

 

• A media coop that offers resources to creatives and doers

• A media outlet that produces content, in our own voice.

• A creative agency that works with clients, so we can pay our bills.

 

We live for the moments of discovering a person’s story, connecting with them as a collaborator, and making a creative work to share with our audience.
