Event description

Description

Does light have to be trivial? Does serious have to be boring and strident? Are you a beginning or aspiring writer interested in exploring how genre fiction (romance, mystery, humour, science fiction, fantasy—the kind we all love to read!) can also express the things that are most important to you?
This 2.5 hour workshop, taught by author Anna Dowdall. The class will take a hands-on approach to exploring this issue. There’ ll be:
  • an introduction about “value” in fiction, including who gets to decide it
  • a partnered writing exercise
  • a group discussion with presentations (but no pressure to volunteer)
You don’t need to be an aspiring writer for this workshop. Interested readers who’ve wondered about this issue are welcome too. No preparation is required, but please bring your own pen or pencil and paper to the workshop, a sample of your own writing if you feel like it, and any reading material that you think might offer insight into this issue.

Registration is required. Please contact the Fort York branch if you have any questions, 416-393-6240.
