A Writer’s Process: The Scribe, The Scribbler, and The Scrabble Board

Who is the speaker in the stories or poems you write, and where do the words come from? The sources of writing can be academic, personal, social, physical, political and often mysterious. Your material is everywhere: the letters on the scrabble board, what you ate for breakfast, your neighbour’s voice. In this series, you are invited to three sessions of writing experiments and conversations with the scribe, the speaker, and the sources of your expression.

February 12th, 2013 · No Comments

Finding a Trusting Spirit: a writing workshop for graduate students at U of T

What part of your spirit never goes to work, gets edited out, or left at home? How do you find words, experiences, human and material supports to invite your whole self to your day? This workshop explores the meeting place of your humanity and your professional self at U of T, the risks and costs, needs and desires. Through writing exercises, explore the possibility of finding a trusting spirit at the cusp of work and heart. No writing experience necessary.
