it’s workshop time again, folks!


A one-day writing workshop.

Inspiration, structure and support for those with lots of writing experience and for those with none.

Spend a day learning to trust your voice and tell your stories. Listen to your creative self. Gain confidence and perspective from contact with other writers. Write in the garden and enjoy positive feedback, bushy perennials and lunch.

Who: Writer and teacher Beth Kaplan has taught personal narrative writing at Ryerson for 16 years and at U of T for 4.

When: Sunday August 22, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Cost: $125, including food for thought and actual food.

Where: Beth’s garden in Cabbagetown, in downtown Toronto. If there’s rain, inside the house.

Laughter, camaraderie and insight guaranteed.

Here is a letter sent after a previous workshop:

“Dear Beth: I’d like to express my deep appreciation to you for making July 13 such a memorable day.

You have a special gift for creating a safe learning environment and for supporting all of our efforts. You seem to have an endless well of positive things to say without ever passing judgement.

It was a joy to be there with you and the others. Your garden is magical, and you created a magical day for me. Thank you very much. Ann C.”
