For CanWrite! 2019, Betsy Warland will offer a workshop on the role on inquiry and imagination in memoir.
Imagination and inquiry are essential aspects of writing a memoir as engrossing as a good novel. Betsy will introduce you to some of these key strategies and reflect on several published memoirs she has been an editor for, one being Darrel J. McLeod’s Mamaskatch (recipient of the 2018 Governor Generals Award).
Date / Time: Friday, May 17 from 9:30 – 11:45 am
