Writing Workshops, Retreats, Mentoring

WRITE-CRAFT-READ Poetry Workshop Night – October 5th

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 – October 5th, 2015 – our guest facilitator will be:

Susie-Whelehan (1)

Susie Whelehan

AWA facilitator and host of the Writers’ Oasis monthly retreats

Susie Whelehan reads and writes in Toronto’s West End. Her work has been produced on television and published in The Globe and Mail, The Toronto Star, The Windsor Review, and various anthologies. She was a finalist in CBC’s Canada Writes and won first place in poetry at the Canada Church Press Awards. With Rebecca Cunningham, Susie co-wrote Meditating Mamas: a Spiritual Resource for New Mothers, published by Novalis, and with Anne Laurel Carter she co-edited and contributed to an anthology published by Knopf Canada, My Wedding Dress: True-life Tales of Lace, Laughter, Tears and Tulle.

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

Join Sue Reynolds, James Dewar and Susie Whelehan on Monday, October 5th at 7:30!
