Hone Your Skills: Creativity in Business, Meditation and Poetry, Indie Symposium, Self-Help Writing, XML, and More!
Last week, we listed three great writing workshops this fall that you could attend to nurture your creativity and boost your skills. This week, we present several more for your consideration:
Starting Oct. 3 and running every Wednesday for 4 weeks, WorkInCulture (at the Toronto Public Library) will demystify "the language of business for creative professionals from any discipline." Learn how to translate your creativity to the business world and gain practical skills to help you succeed. This one is free, so check out the listing for more details!
Every Monday from Oct. 13 to Nov. 26, Jody Nyasha Warner will teach you how to use mindfulness and poetry writing "as a means of mapping the stories in your mouth, the ground at your feet and the knowings in your heart." Enjoy meditation sessions, poetry readings, poetic exercises, prompts, and opportunities to share with the group.
Have a whole day to devote? Why not attend the Canzine Symposium for Indie Creators on Oct. 20 to learn more about fundraising strategies and indie culture and meet up with other indie creators.
If one-night events are more your thing, you might like Gene Hayden’s workshop at Humber College on how to write and pitch a self-help book that will sell (Oct. 20) or learn all about XML in publishing from the Editors’ Association of Canada, Stella Partheniou Grasso, and Sylvia Hunter (Oct. 22).
