The TIFA/Humber Creative Writing Masterclass Series is a partnership between the Humber School for Writers and the Toronto International Festival of Authors. Launching in the Fall or 2020 as part of the Festival’s digital slate, the series will provide an exclusive array of virtual writing masterclasses for the Festival’s audience. Classes will be led by renowned Humber School for Writers faculty.

Each Masterclass will be 90-minutes long and address a specific aspect of writing craft and life. Classes will be held via one of Humber College’s virtual platforms, with a group of up to 40 students. The Masterclasses are open to all levels of writers, and will take place daily during TIFA.

This class will discuss ways of expanding one’s writing and project beyond the closed space of the mind and the imagination of the person writing it. How to ask for feedback and help? How to use outside texts to explode and expand what you’re writing about? There are so many ways to bring the flux of time and the strangeness of every day into the moment of writing in a way that leads to new discoveries. We will do exercises in the class that can be brought into your process in the future. Sheila Heti is your instructor.

$45/workshop
Reduced rates are available to TIFA Patrons and Festival Friends and recent graduates of the Humber School for Writers.
