Join us Saturday, January 7th at 7pm for The Write Stuff - Clearing a Path: Finding your way to a first draft. A multi-genre workshop that offers tools and support for completing the first draft of your book with Alessandra Naccarato. This session is part of The Write Stuff new virtual series focused on writing craft in various genres.
This is designed as an open-level workshop, well-suited for a writer working on their first book, a writer working in a new genre, or someone working on a long-term project. Ideally, participants will have a work-in-progress and a sense of their goals and themes.
Alessandra Naccarato is the author of Imminent Domains: Reckoning with the Anthropocene (Essays) and Re-Origin of Species (Poems). Born and raised in Tkaronto (Toronto), she is the recipient of the RBC Bronwen Wallace Award and the CBC Poetry Prize, and her poetry and essays have appeared widely in publications such as The New Quarterly, Room Magazine, and Event. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia, and a graduate degree in Community Economic Development from Concordia University, supporting two decades of work and research in grassroots social change, community arts, and the prevention of gender-based violence. Her debut poetry collection, Re-Origin of Species, was awarded the AICW Bressani Literary Prize for Poetry, shortlisted for the Gerald Lampert Memorial Award, longlisted for the Pat Lowther Memorial Award, and named a Best Book of 2019 by CBC Books.
