Need a nudge to keep your writing going as the geese migrate and the trees lose their leaves? Join Winnipeg poet Ariel Gordon as she leads a once a month reading and writing course for new writers. Workshop your fiction, poetry, or non-fiction and try your hand at exercises designed to have you writing, thinking and feeling summery all season long.

Ariel Gordon, a Winnipeg-based writer and editor, is the 2010 recipient of the John Hirsch Award for Most Promising Manitoba Writer. Her first collection of poems, Hump (Palimpsest Press, 2010) won the 2011 Aqua Books Lansdowne Prize for Poetry at the Manitoba Book Awards. Most recently, she collaborated with designer Julia Michaud on the disaster DIY chapbook How to Prepare for Flooding (JackPine Press, 2011), which was launched at Words Aloud Spoken Word and Storytelling

Please Note: Classes are once a month through the fall: Sept 17, Oct 22 and Nov 19. You will have an opportunity between classes to implement new practises and incorporate your ideas into a piece of writing.

I advertised this workshop on Facebook today and Kitty Lewis at Brick Books immediately emailed asking if I wanted books for workshop participants.

Which is the loveliest offer I've had in long time.
