Creative non-fiction online workshop with This editor

This Magazine Staff

As part of this year’s annual Great Canadian Literary Hunt, This Magazine is running a series of online (free!) workshops. First up is creative non-fiction. The theme of this workshop is: how to nail the “I” voice. Writing in first-person, and doing it well, is one tricky feat. Whether you need mega or minor advice, or just want a second set of expert eyes, this workshop is for you.

Send us a full story, or an excerpt, of up to 750 words. We’ll randomly pick three pieces from all the submissions. This Magazine editor Lauren McKeon will then workshop each of our picks with the author. After, we’ll post before and after excerpts online, with tips, for everybody to learn from, discuss, and read.

Send your workshop submission to [email protected] by June 25, 10 a.m. EST. DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO MIDNIGHT. Yey!
