2010 Great Blue Heron Writing Workshop

The 2010 Great Blue Heron Writing Workshop (June 29 – July 4) at St. Francis Xavier University, Antigonish, offers mid-level writers a wonderful opportunity to develop their writing  by working with some of Canada’s top writers in the areas of fiction, playwriting, poetry, or memoir. In addition this year the Great Blue Heron is offering a workshop specifically for young writers (ages 16-21).
Held on the StFX campus, this intense workshop involves participants in group and individual sessions with workshop faculty, and offers a venue for public and private readings by faculty and participants.  The workshop group and individual sessions, the informal social events and sharing of writing experiences that are part of the Great Blue Heron,  inspire participants to continue to develop their craft.  This year’s workshop faculty includes:
Daniel MacIvor – Playwriting    http://www.danielmacivor.com/
