DANIELLE POPE: Creative Writing: Practice on the Page

Find the story you’re meant to write. Join The Story Midwife, Danielle Pope, for an opportunity to unleash your creative side and let your inner writer have a little fun. This two-day workshop is designed to get the words flowing through a progressive series of writing prompts meant to deepen your level of self expression. Too often, our laundry list of to-dos overtakes our creative side. It’s time to give yourself permission to come out and play. Danielle will guide you through a series of grounding activities, writing exercises and reading opportunities to get your pen moving and to give you the tools to unleash your writer within. Feel free to come with a project you’re working on, or a blank page. Whether you’re a published author working on your 10th novel, a person who’s always dreamed of penning your first work or someone who just needs an excuse to get creative, this all-levels, all-genres workshop is open for you. Bring along your favourite notebook and pen, and prepare to dive deeply into this journey of self expression.

Course Fee: $280  Supply Fee: n/a   Tuition includes lunch and two snacks. Prices include all applicable taxes.
