What do you do when you have that "big idea" that slips away every time you try to corner it?
How do you crack open a large topic and make it immediate and real?
In this intensive workshop, we will practice the art of making the general personal. How to pluck the singular, original voice out of the common idea.

Registration: Sign up and we will be in touch. Payment can be made via bank transfer, cheque/check or cash (by special arrangement).
Cancellation policy: If you cancel within one week of the workshop and your place cannot be filled, you will be asked to cover the total cost of the seminar.
Testimonial from "Writing from the Ordinary," Jan 18, 2018:
In just a few hours, Jane took us through four different genres of poetry, with examples, exercises and time to share and receive feedback.... She's an amazing teacher and I left feeling refreshed and inspired! Thank you Nadia for organizing such a special treat! - C.G.
