rob mclennan's poetry workshops: August-October, in our wee house,‏

After a successful spring-summer session, I return once again to offering poetry workshops. Originally held at Collected Works Bookstore and Coffeebar, this session will be held at our wee house on Alta Vista Drive (just south of Randall Avenue). Address and directions to be provided.

The workshops are scheduled for Wednesday nights: August 26, September 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30, and October 7 and 21.

$200 for 8 sessions.

for information, contact rob mclennan at rob_mclennan (at) or 613 239 0337;

An eight week poetry workshop, the course will focus on workshopping writing of the participants, as well as reading various works by contemporary writers, both Canadian and American. Participants should be prepared to have a handful of work completed before the beginning of the first class, to be workshopped (roughly ten pages).

Previous participants over the past few years have included: Amanda Earl, Frances Boyle, Chris Johnson, Roland Prevost, Christine McNair, Pearl Pirie, Sandra Ridley, Marilyn Irwin, Rachel Zavitz, Janice Tokar, Dean Steadman, Nicholas Lea, David Blaikie, James Irwin and Marcus McCann.

For those unable to participate, I still offer my ongoing editorial service of poetry manuscript reading, editing and evaluation.
