WRITING WITH STYLE - Brian Henry Workshop

The Headwaters Writers' Guild present…
“Writing with style” ~ with guest author Jean-Rae Baxter ~
Saturday, March 13,10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Tweedsmuir Presbyterian Church, 6 John Street, Orangeville

If you do any kind of creative writing, fiction or non-fiction, and your prose needs some panache or a dash of sass, this workshop is for you. We’ll tackle the nitty-gritty of putting words on paper in a way that will grip the reader’s imagination. You'll learn how to avoid common errors that drain the life from your prose. And you'll discover how to make your writing more vivid, more elegant and more powerful.

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing teacher for more than 25 years. He has helped many of his students get published, including guest speaker Jean-Rae Baxter…

Jean Rae Baxter is an author of many talents. Her short story collection A Twist of Malice (Seraphim) garnered critical acclaim, and one of the stories was re-crafted as a stage play. She has also published, The Way Lies North (Ronsdale Press), a young adult historical novel set during the American Revolution. Most recently, she published, Looking for Cardenio, a literary murder mystery. Jean will publish a sequel to The Way Lies North next year, and a second short story collection (for adults) is also in the works.
