IDI GTA, in partnership Toronto Writer’s Collective, organized a writing workshop, where the participants were offered the opportunity to generate new writing in a supportive environment. Workshop size was limited to ensure that each member receives enough time and attention. Participants had dinner together before the workshop, and took home an award-winning card game, “More Than One Story“.
17 February 2016, 6:00pm-9:30pm, 481 University Avenue Suite:711 Toronto.
What to expect at the workshop?
TWC-certified workshop leader supplies writing prompts to the writing group, but workshop members are free to ignore the prompt and write on their own.
Workshop participants write together during the workshop and receive positive, supportive feedback. We do not critique brand new writing because the writer has not yet had a chance to read or revise it. In addition, it is assumed that all writing done in the workshop is fictional.
Workshop leaders also write as part of the group, providing a model for taking risks and showing vulnerability in a group setting. These guidelines ensure that participants feel safe to write and read aloud even the riskiest material.
TWC workshops provide structure for writers to produce new work on a regular basis. Writers are given the freedom to find and strengthen their individual and unique voices and are encouraged to experiment with form, style, and new genres.
