Creative literary workshops: Les mots pour me dire (A Way to Express Myself )
Maison Gabrielle-Roy is starting a new series of skill development workshops in French. Called Les mots pour me dire (A Way to Express Myself), the workshops will explore ways to create and to publish participants’ work. Eight workshops, planned to run between January and June, 2016, will be held in St. Boniface, St. Malo and St. Pierre-Jolys. The fee of $20 covers the complete series of workshops.
Bertrand Nayet, our author in residence, will be responsible for the project.
Participants will learn about literature and the visual arts, and will create works either individually or in collaboration with others. They will learn how to revise their work and present it to the public through self-publication or as part of an exhibition which may be organized in the community. The final goal of the project is to publish a selection of participants’ work.
The first workshop is to be held on January 16 at Maison Gabrielle-Roy, 375 Deschambault Street in St. Boniface. The other workshops will alternate between St. Boniface and the participants’ communities. For further information or to register for the workshops, please contact Robert Nicolas at (204) 231-3853.
