The Alchemy of Fiction: A Weekend Writing Workshop with Mark Frutkin

September 25-27, at the Venosta Writers Retreat, Venosta, Quebec

A writing workshop is a great way to hone that short story or polish that first chapter of your novel. This weekend will be a delightful and fun exploration of creative writing, as the group, under the direction of Mark Frutkin (author of fifteen books), will examine your earlier submitted short stories and discuss writing in general, including inspiration, plot, character, the writing and editing process, and publishing.

The workshop will include writing exercises to help get those creative juices flowing, much conversation about good writing, and personal meetings to discuss your work with the author-in-residence.

The workshop is open to writers at all levels.

The retreat is located in a quiet valley at the base of the Laurentian hills, with lake and trails, 50 minutes north of Ottawa Hull.
