Got a masterpiece mouldering in a drawer that needs just a little bit of expert polish? Sitting just a few comma splices short of a New York Times bestseller? Looking for that bit of alchemy that might turn your leaden dialogue into gold? Then look no further. Visit The Humber School website for details.
Registration is now open for the Summer Workshop in Creative Writing at the Humber School for Writers, running July 9 – 15, 2011 in Toronto at Humber’s Lakeshore Campus.
Since 1992, the Humber School for Writers has distinguished itself as a leading centre for the study of creative writing. Our track record speaks for itself: more than 275 of our graduates have been published, including placements by our in-house agency. Several have been nominated for literary awards, and a few have gone on to win. Alumna Angie Abdou’s The Bone Cage, for instance, was chosen for a prestigious list – one of the five books on this year’s Canada Reads. Sarah Selecky’s This Cake is for the Party was shortlisted for the 2010 Scotiabank Giller Prize. Robert Rotenberg had bidding wars in New York, London, and Toronto for his first novel, Old City Hall, and Cathy Marie Buchanan’s The Day the Falls Stood Still sold in Italy, the USA, the UK, and made The New York Times Best Sellers list.
