Teaching Creative Non Fiction at the University of Toronto

cover2013I’m teaching both Introduction to Creative Nonfiction and an Advanced Creative Nonfiction workshop at the University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Studies  this summer. I’m really excited about it!

The introduction course invites you to explore what it is you want and need to say, and it helps you find an immediate, noteworthy, compelling and perhaps provocative form for expressing it.

The advanced course is an intensive workshop for writers with a memoir, personal essay, lyric essay, travel story or biography in progress. With the help of constructive criticism and support from your peers, you will have the opportunity to refine a work-in-progress and to develop new material. To apply you must have completed Introduction to Creative Nonfiction or send a sample of your writing for my approval.

The intro course run from July 16th to September 3rd, and you can register to it here. The advanced course run from July 10th to August 28th. To register, go here
