Taddle Creek Summer Writers' Workshop includes a stellar
cast of instructors who can show you how to make your writing
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

benefits, stimulation and excitement close at-hand not only of
great writers but of Canada's largest city.
