About this Event
Led by Susan Turk Mozer, founder of the Toronto Writers Collective, and Bronwyn Singleton and Susan Ksiezopolski, this workshop explored how expressive writing engages people at all levels of their writing journeys.
Established as a non-profit corporation in 2012, the Toronto Writers Collective has trained over 160 volunteer writing workshop facilitators in the TWC method. The Toronto Writers Collective provides generative creative writing workshops to unheard populations honouring authentic voice. Our method encourages deep exploratory risk-taking writing, often inspiring stories told for the first time. Based on the seminal book, Writing Alone and With Others, by writing teacher Pat Schneider .
