I've been urged to run my garden workshops again this summer, after missing last summer because of my travels. So here we go.
WRITE IN THE GARDEN, 2010
A one-day writing workshop to give you inspiration, structure and support, whether you have lots of writing experience or none.
Spend a day learning to trust your voice and your stories. Rediscover your creative self. Connect with other writers. Write in the garden and enjoy positive listening and feedback, hot and cold beverages, bushy perennials, and lunch.
Laughter, camaraderie and insight guaranteed.
Who: The workshop is run by Beth Kaplan, who has taught personal narrative writing at Ryerson for 16 years and at U of T for 4."Beth is a wonderful teacher. I was encouraged and motivated and learned so much. I am totally inspired to write."Amy Block, after her day at Write in the Garden
Where: Beth's secret garden in Cabbagetown, in the heart of downtown Toronto. If there's rain, inside the house.

Cost: $125, including snacks and lunch.
Schedule (more or less): 9.30-10 a.m.: greetings, coffee and muffins; 10-12.15: two short, fun exercises, where you will write on the spot and then gather to read, though only if you want to.

I know, I know, still not back to almost-daily blogging. There's definitely something about plunging back into daily life, not able to rhapsodize about buildings and bridges and museums ... Back to the joy of the mundane, and to top it off, it's cold. Suddenly spring ended and October began, freezing winds and all. It happens every year - the minute we get all our woolens put away, Mother Nature pulls the green spring rug out from under our feet and hits us with cold again. Hibernation time, till it's warm again.
