Many of you might have heard rumblings of this over the past few months, but whether you have or not this message is to let you know that various BookThugs will be offering creative writing workshops -- the kind that aren't available anywhere else in the GTA -- through the Toronto New School of Writing, starting in March.
The Toronto New School of Writing is a collecive entity that has teamed up with BookThug and a new book store and cultural space located at 283 College Street called of swallows, their deeds, and the winter below. TNSoW hopes to offer an ongoing series of inexpensive workshops, lectures, reading classes and other thought provoking reasons for living and literature.
The initial batch of courses include:
Mark Goldstein's Transtranslation Workshop (12 weeks)
Jay MillAr's Long Poem Workshop (12 weeks)
Angela Carr's Form & Figura: From Varro to Bergvall (1 week intensive)
Cara Benson's Fearless Poetry Workshop: Writing Poems the John Cage Way (1 day workshop)
Mark Truscott's The Joy (and Ethics) of Not Writing (1 day workshop)
Details on these workshops are available at www.tnsow.com
Space is limited, so if you are interested in participating, sign up soon!
