  • The Surplace Media Co-op is offering a writing workshop: Write like a Pro with Colleen Kimmett (4 sessions x 3 hrs). This workshop will guide participants through the stylistic and technical elements that make a great piece of writing. It will draw heavily from the art and craft of narrative non-fiction, but will be relevant for anyone who wants to communicate more effectively through the written word. Over the course of the workshop, we’ll cover shaping ideas; planning and organizing material; elements of storytelling; wordcraft and style; finding your voice; tough-love editing; and, finally, putting your work out there. This workshop starts on FEBRUARY 6, 2018. ELAN Members get a 10% discount. Email us at admin@quebec-elan.org to learn how.  Click here to register.
