DetailsQueen Gallery Presents, Fiction Workshop with Ava Homa.
DATES: Tuesday January 18, 25 and Feb 1 2011 6:30-8:30 pm.
Do you want to prove the myth wrong that only a few exceptionally bright and gifted individuals are creative? Have you been thinking about writing a story that has preoccupied you for months and years? Do you have a novel or short story in progress, and would like feedback from an experienced writer and creative writing tutor? And, last but not the least, have you ever heard of a $50 workshop in down town Toronto?
At the Queen Gallery in January 2011 get down to business – with Ava Homa, a fiction writer based on Toronto, who is uniquely qualified to preach what she practices. She has been giving creative writing lessons for almost six years, at high schools and universities and to writer’s schools.
The emphasis in this workshop will be on writing narrative fiction, primarily novels and short stories, though creative writers working in non-fiction will also be welcome. Throughout the workshop, all participants will have a chance for intensive, one-on-one sessions with Ava Homa to discuss their work. In addition, there will be engrossing discussions between group members.
Writers who would like to be considered for the workshop are invited to send the following work, as soon as possible (latest, January 8, 2010). This is not mandatory but will let Ava help you better with your writing.
1. A précis or short description (a page or less) of the narrative you intend to work on during the workshop at Queen Gallery.
2. A sample of your writing, preferably from the narrative you intend to work on (5 to 10 pages). Please send to creativewriting@live[dot]ca.
Cost: 3-day workshop is $50 dollars.
Deadline for submitting completed applications, manuscripts, etc (see "Submissions" above) is January 8, 2011. Late entries only considered if there is still room, so apply early!
