Let’s Get Writing in January 2020!

Come take CREATIVE NON-FICTION – CEJN 122 at Concordia University – Centre for Continuing Education
January 14 – March 17, Tuesdays 6-9 p.m. 10 sessions.
Let’s warm up to creativity and write our hearts out.

Not everything in print is black and white. Nuance, personal point of view and interpretation can all colour creative non-fiction, the form used in personal essays, reportages and the like. In this course, you’ll use close observation of real events to explore techniques of the genre like narrative structure, character development, scene-setting and dialogue. Most of all, you’ll focus on developing vision, your creativity and your personal voice, which are all essential to capturing your reader’s attention.

Teaching Spring 2019 at Concordia University – Writing Your Memoirs – CEJN 134

Teaching Spring 2019 at Concordia University –    Writing Your Memoirs – CEJN 134

Memoirs aren’t just for people in the final chapters of their lives. If you’re old enough to be in this course, you’ve lived through a lot. You have a story that’s unique, one that deserves to be written for posterity… or maybe for a publisher with an audience eager to learn from your experiences. Either way, this is your chance to read and write in the memoir genre. By the end of the course, you’ll have one polished, publication-ready piece of non-fiction, narrative autobiography. And that’s something to tell the world about.

Dates:  April 4 to June 6, 2019 – Thursdays 6:00 – 9:00 pm

Teaching Spring 2017 at Concordia University – Writing For The Web – CEJN 144

Teaching Spring 2017 at Concordia University – Writing For The Web – CEJN 144

I will be teaching the course ‘Writing For the Web’ (CEJN 144) at Concordia University in the Centre for Continuing Education. Starting April 5 to June 7 on Wednesdays 6 to 8 pm. Sign-up and have a Web-Wonderful Spring!

WRITING FOR THE WEB (CEJN 144) – Course Description

This course is designed for people who want to explore writing for the web. It examines how people read on the web to distinguish why writing for the web is different from print journalism and traditional communications practices. Each student will develop an idea for a blog, on a topic of personal and/or professional interest. These blogs will then be used as a platform for publishing for a series of web-writing exercises in the form of blog posts, in which students will practice fundamentals of writing for the web.
