Brian Henry will teach us how to build our stories followed by an evening of wilderness tales and foot-stompin’, step-dancin’ fun as Paton Lodge Lindsay teams up with the O’Schraves
He gave the best publishing workshop many of us had ever attended so, of course, we had to invite him back!
This time, Brian Henry will be teaching us how to plot a novel and give us the best tips on writing short stories.
We’ll also look at where to get stories published and how to win contests.
Brian has been a book editor and creative writing instructor for more than 25 years. He publishes Quick Brown Fox, Canada’s most popular blog for writers. He also teaches creative writing at Ryerson University and has helped many authors get their first book published and launch their careers. So be sure to come out Saturday April 25th to give your writing a boost for Spring.

Don’t miss the evening
Be sure to stay in town for some story-tellin’, foot stompin’ fun.
Paton Lodge Lindsay will be reading from her latest book about life in the wilderness with Joseph Emmett Chartrand.
Known as ‘Trapper’, Chartrand lived off the land since childhood when he figured out a single beaver pelt could net him $35 compared to the $6 per month he’d make working for his father in a logging camp.
Paton tells us how, as a young city girl, she sparred with the ‘old trapper’ over their different lifestyles as, together, they developed a rich, lasting relationship.
We are proud to be pairing Paton’s stories with music from the O’Schraves, who have garnered a reputation for being among the country’s finest traditional musicians.
They were recently given the New Emerging Artist Award by liveireland.com and Best New Group of 2014 from the Chicago Irish American News.
On April 25th, they’ll bring the fiddlin’, pipin’, step dancin’ fun that promises to make this an unforgettable night.
