In the heart of a great city, experience what great writers have to teach you about writing. This year's Taddle Creek Summer Writers' Workshop includes a stellar cast of instructors who can show you how to make your writing successful.

Our four-day event is scheduled so you don't have to miss work and features a workshop of your choice where you can learn from an outstanding writer and have the chance to work one-on-one with your instructor and access a great writer-in-residence.

We're also featuring evening readings, barbecue get-togethers and seminars on publishing your work. All this and the experience of intensive study in writing at Canada's most prestigious university for a price that other workshops can't beat.

The Taddle Creek Summer Writers' Workshop is a rare opportunity to experience the ambience of the "world within a world" of the University of Toronto's famous Hart House while having the benefits, stimulation and excitement close at-hand not only of great writers but of Canada's largest city.

Science Fiction Workshop with Robert J. Sawyer

Science fiction is one of the most popular publishing categories in the world, and Canadian writers are at the forefront, with their works being eagerly bought by major New York publishers.

You'll learn a thematic approach to plotting, how to create characters appropriate to your theme, how to design an alien world and alien beings, the various subgenres of science fiction, how to do research for writing SF, the rules for success in SF publishing, and how and where to market and promote your work, both in Canada and the U.S.

Robert J. Sawyer won the Nebula Award (the "Academy Award" of the SF field) for his novel The Terminal Experiment; he is also the author of the novels Starplex, Frameshift, and Factoring Humanity, all of which were finalists for the Hugo Award (SF's international "People's Choice" award).
