The Working Writers Series continues...

2019 can’t come soon enough! Check out our upcoming workshops below, and feel free to contact us with any questions.

The Voice: Kidlit Edition

Saturday January 26, 9:15 to 11:45 am

Location: Kitsilano Neighbourhood House (2305 W 7th Ave, Vancouver)

Harriet the Spy. Adrian Mole. Even Mo Willem’s Pigeon! We remember children’s book characters long after we’ve turned the final pages. So how do we make our own creations so vividly real? In this workshop, we’ll dig deep into the craft of creating memorable voices through perspective, dialogue, body language, subtext, and more. 

Cost: $60.00

 

Epistolary in an emoji world

Saturday February 23, 9:15 to 11:45 am

Location: Kitsilano Neighbourhood House (2305 W 7th Ave, Vancouver)

Why stick to plain old paragraphs? In this workshop, we’ll have some fun with form, experimenting with texts, emails, verse and more! We’ll also tackle the question of how to make your writing modern and relevant without succumbing to slang and dated cultural references. You’ll leave ready to tackle the world of children’s books in new and unexpected ways. 

Cost: $60.00

 

All the Feels

Saturday April 27, 9:15 to 11:45 am

Location: Kitsilano Neighbourhood House (2305 W 7th Ave, Vancouver)

Our favourite books can make us laugh out loud or stain pages with our tears. Sometimes they can even do both! In this workshop, we’ll explore how master children’s writers infuse their stories with humour and tragedy, and how we can achieve the delicate balance of both emotions. Get ready to feel the feels!

Cost: $60.00
