We are privileged to have acclaimed poet and author, Barry Dempster, as our speaker. Barry will be leading a writing workshop, so we’re planning on changing up our schedule a bit to provide more time for writing.
A workshop on the power of music and tone in all genres of writing. How to use language as a tool of invention as well as recollection.
A series of exercises to not only wake up the words, but the relationships between those words as well.
Barry is an amazing facilitator. His workshop will fill up quickly, so be sure to register soon!
Fees: $20 for members, $25 for non-members. Price includes lunch and workshop.
12:15 – doors open for networking and registration.
12:45 to 1:15 p.m – lunch will be served, with 1-minute announcements** and a 5-minute reading during the meal. Chef Deb Rankine will be posting a menu shortly.
1:15 to 1:35 – health break and networking
1:40 – 3:45 – Workshop
4:00 – meeting concludes
Location - the Aurora Cultural Centre at 24 Church Street, Aurora. There is parking nearby in the ACC and Aurora Public Library lots and on the street. Why not give a WCYR membership to someone you know who is interested in improving their writing skills? They’ll thank you for it from now until December 2012!
