Writing Outside the Box: 9:00 am – 11:15 am on September 25th, 2020
Molson Award-winning experimental fiction writer Diane Schoemperlen shares her “box of tricks”, offering techniques for opening yourself to experimentation with literary form by using the page in unique ways, re-imagining the arrangement of text on the page, or incorporating visual elements. For the non-adventurous or stuck writer, or one who feels creativity welling but isn’t sure how to activate it, this is a gentle way to bust out of the rut of conventional story-telling and get the creativity flowing. In-class exercises give you hands-on practice, and you may surprise yourself by creating something that’s outside the box.
Limited enrolment, register in advance.
