shameless hucksterism, Part 2

The U of T summer writing school is an intense week at the beginning of July, covering many aspects of the writing process. I’ll be teaching Life Stories. Check it out on this website under Teaching, then follow the links to U of T and the Summer Writing School.

“The U of T writing school was a great way to plunge into tangential dialogue, surprising plot twists, and flesh out an eccentric cast of characters… and in addition to all that, I did some half-decent fiction writing while I was there.”
Vincent Lam, Author Bloodletting and Miraculous Cures: Stories, Giller Prize Award Winner, and Creative Writing Summer School Student.

July 4 – 8, 2011

Join our five day intensive workshop for emerging writers. Steps from the subway, on U of T’s campus in downtown Toronto , we offer you a chance to learn the craft of writing from some of Canada’s finest authors.
