What we're about

Getting your writing done can be about finding the space for it in time or in place. It can also be about finding the right writing community that enables your writing to grow.

Do you want to develop your writing skills along with other writing enthusiasts? We're a group of writers with various levels of experience and interest in many different forms of writing, including short stories, micro fiction, flash fiction, poetry, essays, blog posts, articles, short film scripts and more.

We used to meet every two weeks in downtown Toronto, but at this time we've taken our workshops online.

We start with a short writing exercise and then we discuss either a piece of published writing or a specific topic. After that we spend the rest of the time sharing feedback for texts by two participants.

Submitted texts for workshops are not longer than 5 pages. They can be complete stories/poems/scripts for help with final editing touches, or a first draft of something that you want help to develop ideas and directions for, or anything in between.

Workshop texts are shared through Google Drive about a week before our meetups, to leave time for everyone to read and prepare comments beforehand. Submissions are sent to me by Sunday the week before each meetup.

Send me a message if you have a text that you want workshopped for feedback.

You can also just join us for a workshop and check what our group is about and if it's a good fit for you!

Welcome!

Writers' Workshop

Online event

We start with a writing exercise and then continue with discussion on a writing related topic and/or discuss a short piece of published writing, to analyze what makes that piece work and what literary devices have been used in crafting it.

The rest of the time is spent on feedback for texts by one or two participants that have been shared beforehand via Google Drive about a week before the workshop.

Submitted texts for workshops are not longer than 5 pages. They can be complete stories/poems/scripts for help with final editing touches, or a first draft of something that you want help to develop ideas and directions for, or anything in between.

If you haven't received a link to the texts, please check your settings and make sure that you haven't opted out of receiving notifications for this group. The links are also posted on the group message board (go to the group page, click "More" and then "Message boards").

To join the online workshop, you need to RSVP to the specific event by clicking "Attend". This makes the link to join visible for you on the event page.

The idea of a writing workshop is for us to meet as writers and readers, especially at these isolating times. Screen fatigue is something a lot of us struggle with, and having a clear sense of us meeting as people with faces is a huge difference compared to speaking to a screen filled with faceless little squares. To help creating a sense of us being a group of people actually meeting and a sense of community, everyone is encouraged to participate with video. If there are issues with connection etcetera, you can turn the camera off when you're not speaking.

I look forward to seeing you there!
