**SOLD OUT** A Writing Workshop by Deborah Schnitzer: Stories that matter to us and the tools we might use to write them.


Where: Fort Gibraltar (866 Rue St Joseph)
When: Friday, May 31, 2024
Time: 9:30am-4:00pm
Cost: $100.00
Buffet lunch, snacks, coffee & tea included.
Limited Class Size: 15 People Max.
Registration Deadline: May 21, 2024

To Bring: Participants are asked to bring hardcopies (not digital) of three images, each of which represents a person, place, and thing meaningful to them. These 3 images will provide sparks for some of the day’s writing activities. Please also bring a writing log/journal/paper, pens, markers, and highlighters for the day’s events.

In this day-long workshop, we will explore story telling through a series of guided, generative writing activities to develop storytelling forms and elements. The workshop will include time for discussion, reflection and, if participants wish, the sharing of excerpts from the writing done during the day.

In terms of storytelling tools and elements, activities will focus on voice and point of view; time lines/frames for story making; desire lines; audience; and detailing that can actualize flesh and fact within story.

Deborah Schnitzer is an award-winning author and filmmaker, activist, professor emerita, community-based educator, and Lived Lives columnist for the Winnipeg Free Press.
