The Writing Craft 2

Saturday, October 1, 2016 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm Archived

Carol Shields Auditorium (enter from the 2nd floor walkway), Millennium Library, 251 Donald Street

A seminar for writers at all levels who want to further develop their skills.


Interested in the difference between writing fiction and writing for film? This workshop conducted by novelist, screenwriter, and actor Liam Card will break it down for you. First, he’ll explore the differences in writing for the two mediums, then share some insights about organizing a screenplay.

Participants will have a chance to write a scene in real time—and maybe even see if it works!

Liam Card studied writing at the University of Iowa and the University of North Carolina. He now lives in Toronto. His screenplay Textuality was made into a feature film starring Carly Pope, Jason Lewis, and Eric McCormack. His new novel Stopgap is a work of speculative fiction.

Registration includes coffee & tea. Pick up a light snack beforehand at the Human Bean on the main floor.

The seminar is directed toward people with a strong interest in writing, but no publishing experience is required.

Information and pre-registration: or (204) 927-7323.

Advance tickets are no longer available since our office will be closed during the festival. Tickets can still be purchased at the door of the event.
