Writer's Toolkit workshop on December 15
On Saturday, December 15, Larissa Andrusyshyn will be holding a Writer's Toolkit workshop in English at the library. The event, to be held from 2 to 5 p.m., is co-sponsored by Grove Hall and the Atwater Writers Exhibition (AWE), with thanks to the Department of Canadian Heritage's Community Cultural Action Fund.
Ms. Andrusyshy has published two poetry collections: Mammoth (DC Books 2010), and Proof (DC Books 2015). Her poems have been shortlisted for Arc Magazine's Poem of the Year, the CBC Poetry Prize and the 3macs Carte Blanche prize. She facilitates creative writing workshops in Montreal and is working on her third poetry collection.
Her "Writers' Toolbox" will explore several elements that will improve the impact and depth of the participants' writing. During the workshop, participants will uncover how several writing techniques influence their work: tone, language and point of view. Through writing exercises and discussion, in a playful atmosphere, the participants will create together and share their creative spark. This activity is designed to bring specific tools for writing with more curiosity and less struggle. Everyone interested is welcome to attend, it's free, but please reserve your seat by phoning: 450 264-4872.
