TRUE TO LIFE starts at Ryerson Monday Jan. 13

I’m at the airport, drinking the worst coffee in the world. A bleak vista outside, minus 16, bitter. But planes are coming in and going out, that’s what matters. When I next write, I hope to be wearing considerably less clothing.

HEAR YE: ON MONDAY JANUARY 13, 6.30 – 9.15, my course TRUE TO LIFE starts at Ryerson. Explore your stories, your memories, your writing talent. I look forward to meeting you. 

And on TUESDAY JANUARY 21, 12.30 – 3, LIFE STORIES II begins at U of T, an advanced course for those who have worked with me before. 

Please contact me via this website if you have any questions or concerns. 

And now – a bientot.
