Sarah Selecky teaches creative writing in a way that is simple, radical, and transformative, and allows writers to develop the capacity for deep concentration. To write using these methods means to quiet the mind in the midst of the action and distraction that fills everyday life. In this three hour writing practice workshop, participants will learn how to find this state of calm centeredness, and experience how it is an aid to exploration of story.

You are invited for an exclusive book club session where you can join Becky to discuss her writing while the best of wine and appetizers are served.
In today's society, women are under more pressure than ever to meet certain expectations. While they take very different approaches, three books being featured at this year's Stratford Writers Festival examine the ways women see themselves and are seen by others. In Emily Anglin’s darkly humorous collection of stories, characters refashion themselves to fit a new competitive milieu. Andrea Bain's nonfiction Single Girl Problems details how modern single women continue to be perceived as problematic and attempts to change that narrative. And Sarah Selecky's debut novel Radiant Shimmering Light looks at female friendship, the face we show the world online, and letting your own light shine.
