news about writing classes

Monday morning, all systems go – the guys are preparing to make concrete for the deck, the roofer is hammering the shingles, my usually quiet yard is full of men, ladders, equipment. A concrete mixer. Life is so exciting.

And I’m at work too, preparing for my teaching term which starts tomorrow, with the U of T class “Life Stories,” at 12.30. Then there’s my evening home class tomorrow evening at 6, for students who’ve worked with me at least once before.

The Wednesday Ryerson class at 6.30, “True to Life,” is full or very nearly. Any former students who are thinking of registering, contact me directly instead – perhaps you’ll fit with the Tuesday bunch.  There’s room in that class.

When she was about 9, my daughter made a sign for my mother’s art room – trees, flowers, and the words, “Come on in – it’s art time!”

This is my message to you: Come on in – it’s writing time!
