Uncensored Writing Workshop

March 1, 2017

7:00pm - 8:00pm

Fiction is a dream or a nightmare, an idea - a device that allows the writer to vent, analyze, reflect, entertain, construct or deconstruct, possibly even to effect change. To celebrate our freedom to write, uncensored, workshop participants will be encouraged to take chances, make mistakes and try new approaches in building narratives in this one hour session with Cordelia Strube. Cordelia Strube is an accomplished playwright and the author of nine critically acclaimed novels, including Alex & Zee, Teaching Pigs to Sing, and Lemon. Winner of the CBC literary competition and a Toronto Arts Foundation Award, she has been nominated for the Governor General's Award, the Trillium Book Award, the WH Smith/Books in Canada First Novel Award, the Prix Italia, and long-listed for the Scotiabank Giller Prize. A two-time finalist for ACTRA's Nellie Award celebrating excellence in Canadian broadcasting, she is also a three-time nominee for the ReLit Award. On the Shores of Darkness, There Is Light has won the 2016 Toronto Book Award.
