Just a quick note to say registration for my Fall “Contest Writing” workshops offered through the Ottawa Catholic School Board is now open.
This link should take you directly to the course registration page.
Here’s the course description:
If you want to take your writing to the next level, but aren’t sure how, entering writing contests could be your answer. Contests can provide motivation and opportunity to writers trying to hone their craft and get their work noticed. Canadian writers, working in a variety of genres, will find no shortage of contests open to them with, in most cases, no experience or credentials required. Learn why entering contests is good for your writing, how to find contests that are right for you and tips on preparing and submitting your work. The instructor, Tudor Robins has just published her first Young Adult novel, which was originally written as an entry to a writing contest. This success, in addition to other prize-winning results in several writing contests, have inspired her to help other writers see the benefits of entering contests.
If you want to register, don’t wait until the last minute, as there is an enrolment cut-off below which the course will be canceled.
These courses are usually quite small, which is nice, as it means I can usually find out what everybody’s interested in and tailor the course to the participants’ interests.
Hope to see you in the fall!
