Eden Mills Writers’ Festival Writing Workshops
September 7 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
New this year at the Eden Mills Writers’ Festival is an expanded offering of workshops for aspiring writers.
Cecil Foster, acclaimed author of They Call Me George, which depicts the history of black train porters in Canada, leads a workshop on finding self-confidence as a writer.
Alix Ohlin, chair of the Creative Writing program at UBC, leads Time Travel for Everyone, an investigation of time within stories—when to speed up, when to slow down, how to move around in the past, present, and future.
Anakana Schofield, the inventive author of Bina, invites writers to participate in a workshop entitled Expand Your Universe wherein they will be encouraged to “furnish (their) upstairs chamber with a bit more variety and a few more open windows”.
Celebrated children’s author Marie-Louise Gay, of the Stella and Sam series, will lead two workshops, the first for teachers and librarians, exploring how to encourage children to write their own stories, and the second aimed at aspiring children’s book authors.
