An Afternoon with Sheree Fitch

REGISTRATION FOR THIS WORKSHOP IS NOW CLOSED.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 13, 2013 and set your sights on Saskatoon!

CANSCAIP Sask Horizons is sponsoring Canadian author Sheree Fitch  to do a workshop called:

Wordplay, Whimsy, and Seriously Joyful Nonsense

 Whether we are writing fiction or nonfiction, picture books, plays or novels–(for any age )– our words matter. Not just the “right” words, how we can use them in new and surprising ways. In a workshop designed with guided exercises to free every one’s “poet” brain and inner word maniac we will explore how words can lead us to plot, character and endless possibilities in our work as writers.
