Workshop with Betsy Warland at the Island Mountain Arts centre  in Wells, BC

You’ve written a good part of your narrative and you’ve polished your prose or your verses. But it still doesn’t seem quite right. How do you organize all the pieces you’ve worked so hard on? Which structure will give the most life to your writing?

For answers to these questions, register for Betsy’s Part of the Whole: Nonfiction, Short Fiction and Poetry Narratives.” This four-day workshop will take place at Island Mountain Arts in the Wells/Barkerville/Bowron Lakes area in the central interior of British Columbia from August 26th to August 29th, 2017. There’s a welcome reception on the evening of the 25th, and the price includes a BBQ dinner on the 26th, artist talks, and a reading with Betsy and students.

The early-bird deadline is June 15th, and limited scholarships are available, so don’t hesitate to register ASAP!

Here’s the description of the workshop from the IMA website:

“Best-selling author and sought-after instructor, consultant and editor, Betsy Warland works across many genres and teaches that “everything is writing.” This workshop is for writers of short nonfiction and/or fiction pieces, and/or poetry writers who have enough parts of the whole that it is time to step back and consider how all these parts can most effectively create a whole. When working with nonfiction fragments or short pieces, individual poems, mixed genre pieces, flash fiction, text and images, the most effective structure can be hard to identify which, in turn, undermines coherence and impact. Investigating this midway, however, can make a big difference in how successfully you write the rest of this body of work and increases the possibility of getting it published.”
