We are proud to inform participants that Savvy Sessions are now free, which is made possible by Canada Council for the Arts. Without their funding, each Savvy Session workshop would cost anywhere from $80.00 – $250.00 per person.
Autofiction – Follow the Yellow Brick Road: How to create it and how to take it with you.

- Who to travel with: collaboration in creation, the outsider eye.
- Getting there: drawing your map and following it.
- The lay of the land: finding producing partners.
