The boat is ready—are you?

There are few truly wild places left in the world. The middle of the North Atlantic is one of them. When Linda Kenyon and Chris Hatton set out from Antigua on their first ocean crossing, they didn’t really know what to expect. All they knew for sure was that once they were underway, there would be no turning back. Their first night at sea was gentle, magical almost. The moon was full, the winds light, the seas calm. But it wasn’t always like that. In this seminar, they will talk about the ways they were—and weren’t—prepared for the things they encountered at sea and provide practical advice on how to prepare yourself for a journey into the unknown.

Writing workshop at the Guelph Public Library

Telling your Story

There are many ways to tell your own story: autobiography, memoir, personal essay, letters, journals, blogs. In this workshop, we will focus on how to tell your story in a compelling way, using the techniques of fiction to create vivid scenes and bring the people you write about—including yourself—to life. Come prepared to do some writing—bring pen and paper, your laptop, whatever works for you—and to share your work.
