YA fiction writing with Anita Daher

Through the Looking Glass
Wednesday, September 28 to November 23 
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Aqua Books, 274 Garry St, Winnipeg, MB

Yes, this course will continue despite the impending closure of Aqua Books. 
We will relocate to another central location if and when necessary. Thanks!

Cost: $225 ($200 before September 1) 
To register contact Aqua Books or call 943-7555.  
The workshop is limited to 12 people. 
Bring a notebook and pen, and/or a laptop.  You will benefit from at least having a beginning, and an idea of the book you think you will write.

Anita Daher leads you on a  journey designed to further your teen novel-in-progress. 
In-depth information about writing for teens, and the children’s writing and publishing industry in Canada.  The focus will be on craft with exercises, assignments, workshopping, and at the end - a party!

Anita Daher has been in the book publishing industry for more than fifteen years. She feels “place” infuses her writing, and is grateful to have lived in communities like Summerside, PEI, Moose Jaw, SK, Churchill, MB, Baker Lake, NU, and Yellowknife, NT. 
Her short stories have appeared in Prairie Fire, and she is author of seven youth novels, including Spider’s Song, and Racing for Diamonds (both 2006). 

She has led workshops across the country, and has been a popular presenter at conferences and festivals. Anita edits novels for Great Plains Teen Fiction.
