Powering up your prose
Re-ignite your writing
Monday January 13th - Saturday January 18th 2020
This winter course is a chance to hunker down away from the unforgiving elements and take the time to re-ignite your writing.

What stories do you want to tell and how do you want to tell them? Through a series of readings, reflections, exercises and experiments, we will stoke the flames of inspiration and find your writing voice anew for the months ahead.
