Writing by the Fire

Writing by the Fire:
A Workshop with Ariel Gordon

When: Sunday, November 13, 1-3:30 pm
Location: FortWhyte Alive (1961 McCreary Road)
Cost: $45. FortWhyte Members $40. Register at (204) 989-8355

By November, the geese have gone, the trees have lost their leaves and FortWhyte’s year-round residents are about to go into hibernation. Join award-winning writer Ariel Gordon in an afternoon writing workshop that will see participants tucked into the Siobhan Richardson Field Station with a warm fire and all the tea you can drink. We’ll workshop your fiction, poetry, or non-fiction and try our hands at a few exercises designed to have you writing, thinking and feeling summer all winter long.

Ariel Gordon is a Winnipeg-based writer and editor. In spring 2010, Palimpsest Press published her first full-length poetry collection, Hump. She is the 2010 recipient of the John Hirsch Award for Most Promising Manitoba Writer and the 2011 Aqua Books Lansdowne Prize for Poetry/Le Prix Lansdowne du poesie. How to Prepare for Flooding (JackPine Press, 2011), a collaboration with designer Julia Michaud, will be launched this fall. When not being bookish, Ariel likes tromping through the woods and taking macro photographs of mushrooms.

I do so love FortWhyte. Walking there, eating there, and now teaching there semi-regularly...
