How I'll Be Improving My Writing...

My local library has a writer in residence program, in which a published author and writing teacher offers workshops designed to help aspiring writers improve their skills.  Today was the welcome tea and meet & greet for the program that will run from now until January. 

The writer giving the workshops is Richard Scarsbrook, an author who has published several novels and won various awards for his writing.  He also teaches creative writing at a few colleges in the Toronto area.  His workshops in the writer's program will cover everything from inspiration and ideas, to editing and publishing.  He also provides personal one-on-one meetings to give individualized feedback.  All of this is provided for free.

This is an excellent opportunity for me to learn from someone who is great at what they do, and to meet other writers with whom I can share ideas and experiences.  The first workshop is this Thursday.  I can't wait!
