Writing Workshops, Retreats, Mentoring

Lindsay – Fall 2018

I’m returning to Lindsay this fall. I’ll be offering two linked Back to the Page sessions September 27 and October 4th. Then, beginning November 1, I’ll be facilitating Leaving a Trace – 6 weeks of Memoir writing. More below:

Back to the Page!

You love to write but you’re not writing.
Or maybe you have a love/hate relationship with writing, but you know you WANT to write – and you’re still not writing.

Well, the lazy days of summer, with all their legitimate and not-so-legitimate excuses of why this is not a good time to write, are over.

Time for Back to School — and for writers, it’s time to get Back to the Page!
These two afternoons are not organized around a particular genre of writing. They’ll be organized around you and the writing you want to do. If you have a current project, you can use the class time and the optional homework and feedback to move your novel/short story/poem collection/script/memoir/essays forward.

If you don’t have a particular project Sue will be providing inspiration, prompts and deadlines every week to help you discover your next project.

For Brand New Writers:
If your “Back to the Page” means getting back to your love of writing for the first time in many years, that’s terrific! Sue facilitates her workshops in the AWA Method begun by Pat Schneider (Writing Alone and With Others, and How the Light Gets In) which is a perfect environment to support new writers to discover and experiment with their writing.

For Experienced Writers:
Sue has been leading writing groups, workshops and classes for 20 years, including book-length novel and memoir intensives. She leads her workshops in the AWA method, which has helped hundreds of writers find publication and awards. If what you are looking for is more targeted feedback on your long project, you’ll find it here.

Banish those summertime excuses, stretch your writing muscles and luxuriate in the pleasure of being a writer once again!

Dates: September 27 and October 4th, Thursday afternoons
Times: 1:00 to 4:00 p.m
Place: Path to Stillness Yoga Studio, 55 Mary St W #204, Lindsay, ON
Cost: $60 plus HST

Later in the Fall, starting November 1st for 6 weeks, I’ll be offering:

Leaving a Trace

– a 6 week memoir workshop

Is there something about your life you’re longing to share? Were you part of an event that you could cast a personal and illuminating light on? Have you dreamt of creating a memoir or autobiography for your children or grandchildren, letting them know what the world was like when you were growing up or starting out?

This 6 week workshop will help distill your memories into writer’s ink and help you begin crafting them into a cohesive memoir. This workshop will focus on techniques for getting original memories down in all their sensuous detail, and riveting your readers in the process.

Participants will leave the workshop having written, having listened to the lives of others and (if they choose to!) had their own work listened to and witnessed. There will be optional homework every week and an opportunity to receive private feedback on your writing if you choose.

Dates: Thursday afternoons, November 1 to December
Times: 1:00 to 3:30 p.m
Place: Path to Stillness Yoga Studio, 55 Mary St W #204, Lindsay, ON
Cost: $180.00 plus HST
