Open House with Kirsten Koza

Ray Twinney Recreation Complex (Lounge 1) 100 Eagle Street West, Newmarket

Leave your safety nets at home and prepare to write dangerously. We'll be employing techniques used by method actors on stage, except we'll be using our pens on the page, in a creative exploration of making nonfiction read like fiction. You'll be improvising through genres to find the most exciting way to present the truth and your lead character—you. You don't have to go on an adventure to take your readers on an action-packed head trip, and during this workshop we'll delve into those head trips.
