‘Word Whips’, The North Shore Edition
This workshop is open to everyone and great for all age groups and levels of writers. Take the challenge. Write to a prompt for 10-15 minutes and see what you get. This kind of free flow writing to prompts by-passes the inner critic, removes blocks and inhibitions. With everyone in the same boat, with the same time constraints, it quickly builds trust in groups. Getting stuff out, getting it down on paper and sharing with others—these things are life en-hancing, life affirming.
Hosted by poet Fran Bourassa

Christmas with Charles Dickens

We are proud to present a morning of theatre and music. Written by and starring acclaimed writer/actor Don Mowatt as Charles Dickens, with celebrated actress/writer Carolyn Finlay as Dickens’ lover, actress Ellen Ternan, and actor/former CBC broadcaster Cam Cathcart as Dickens’ friend & novelist Wilkie Collins. Just in time for the holidays, this production has it all: live music and group carols along with lively dialogue, stories and readings from the life of the classic author.
