Humber College Masterclass: What You (Need to) Know – The Art of Literary Research
November 01 at 4pm
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.
In this session, we focus on What You (Need to) Know: The Art of Literary Research. Write what you know? Sure. But there’s more than one way to know something. Award-winning author Alissa York has written from the point of view of a taxidermist, a polygamous horse rancher, a raccoon and more. Join her for a masterclass on finding out what you need to know. Space is limited and registration required.
Reduced rates are available to TIFA Patrons and Festival Friends and recent graduates of the Humber School for Writers.
