Creative Writing Workshop with Anthony Carnovale

November 24, 2019, 1:30am - 3:30am | Orangeville Public Library | Library

Writing is a Contact Sport

Good writing doesn’t happen in isolation. A writer needs to get out and explore and connect with themselves, the world and the things we can’t always see. How can a person write about the world, when they don’t even know their neighbour's name? In this workshop, we’ll think critically, create magically, share compassionately. We’ll ask some tough questions; we’ll try and search for a few answers. We’ll free up our creative energies, explore the senses and play with ideas, in a welcoming, safe space. We will make ‘contact’.

Pre-registration is required.
