Writing Workshops, Retreats, Mentoring


INKSLINGERS offers a once-a-month poetry workshop evening on Mondays at C’est What? in Toronto.

(We’re in the Library Room at the back of the pub!)

This event is designed to inspire poets at every skill level to develop their craft through writing, revising, and performing.
In our new location we have also changed things up a bit. The first part of the evening will not only be writing on the spot, but will also include optional reading of the brand new work. In AWA-workshop fashion, the audience will offer immediate feedback on what’s working already in these just-written pieces.

The first part of the evening will now be facilitated every month by an AWA-certified writing instructor. For the next evening – November 9th, 2015 – our guest facilitator will be:


Kate Marshall Flaherty

AWA facilitator and host of the Stillpoint Writer’s Workshops

Kate Marshall Flaherty published her most recent book, Stone Soup with Quattro Books, the same year as Reaching V, with Guernica Editions. She has been published in Canadian journals such as CV2, Descant, Grain, Malahat Review and Vallum, International Anthologies such as Not A Muse, and American Journals such as Saranac Review. She was Shortlisted for Descant’s Best Canadian Poem, the Pablo Neruda Poetry Prize, the Robert Frost Poetry Prize and Thomas Merton Poetry of the Sacred Award.

She is honoured to have written with both mentors Pat Schneider and Sue Reynolds as she became certified in the AWA Method of writing, and now guides her own StillPoint writing workshops in the AWA method. She guides Golden Rule Leadership Retreats, Writing as a Spiritual Practice Workshops and yoga classes.

She is now the Toronto Rep. for the League of Canadian Poets. Poetry is her lifeline.

Bolster your poetry practice with a night of prompts, production, feedback and community!

Join Sue Reynolds, James Dewar and Kate Marshall Flaherty on Monday, November 9th at 7:30!
