Local author Jeanette Taylor leads a series of upcoming writing workshops at the Museum at Campbell River.

Workshop for Aspiring Fiction & Nonfiction Writers

Five-part workshop designed as a kick start for a range of genres, from memoir and family history to fiction

Is there a writing project brewing in your imagination?

The Museum at Campbell River once again offers its popular five-part Workshop for Aspiring Writers, starting Oct.16. It’s designed as a kick start for a range of genres, from memoir and family history to fiction.

Instructor Jeanette Taylor, author of River City, a History of Campbell River & the Discovery Islands, will guide new and intermediate writers through planning strategies, writing craft, story structure, self-motivation, revisions and publication.

“Participants sample a variety of techniques in every class, applying what they learn to their own project,” says Taylor. “The idea is to start and complete a short piece – an essay, short story or a chapter – during this class. Writing begins in the first session,” adds Taylor, “so come with a pretty well developed story idea or subject in mind.”

The workshop fee of $150 includes a comprehensive binder of readings, and there will be opportunities for peer and instructor feedback.

For more information on Taylor and this workshop see the calendar page on her website, The Scribes, Comprehensive Writing Services, or the Museum at Campbell River’s website.

The workshop only has 12 spaces available, so register sooner rather than later by calling 250-287-3103.
