Opening Doors Through Stories: Discovery

Please be mindful of your time zone. All times listed in Saskatchewan time. (


Storytelling is not a gift reserved for the anointed few. This free five-week workshop series will take a practical hands-on approach to demystify the craft of storytelling. Participants will develop work across genres for publication in the chapbook Opening Doors Through Stories: Discovery. The instructor, award-winning author, Iryn Tushabe, will discuss tools and techniques, including writing exercises and one-on-one sessions, to help writers through the stages of first drafts, re-writing/revision, and final editing.


This workshop is for newcomers to Canada. Permanent Residents with CLB level 6 or higher are encouraged to register.
