Event description

Description

Everyone has a story to tell? Are you a writer looking for inspiration, perhaps something new to write about? Join Muskoka Authors Association guest speaker and award-winning author, Richard Scarsbrook, on Thursday, September 21 for a mini-workshop designed to get you back in the saddle. Using real-time prompts that access both experience and imagination, each writer can leave this workshop with up to a dozen beginnings for new stories and poems. Between exercises, participants can ask the author questions about any aspect of the writing craft and business. With his extensive publishing background of poems, stories and books, Richard’s coaching has helped many student writers to their first publications.

Richard Scarsbrook is the award-winning author of nine books: The adult fiction titles Rockets Versus Gravity, The Indifference League, and Destiny’s Telescope; the Young Adult novels Cheeseburger Subversive, Featherless Bipeds, The Monkeyface Chronicles, and Nothing Man and The Purple Zero, and the poetry collections Six Weeks and Apocalypse One Hundred. In 2011, Richard won the White Pine Award. His books have been finalists for the CLA YA Book of the Year, the Stellar Book Prize, and the ReLit Award. Richard has served as Writer in Residence for the Toronto Public Library, the Richmond Hill Public Library, the Toronto District School Board, and the Orangeville Public Library, and he teaches creative writing courses at Humber and George Brown Colleges in Toronto.
