Hey, what's your favourite notebook? Here's mine.

START WRITING workshops take place at 489 College Street (at Bathurst) in Toronto. We write in a brick & beam, multi-purpose boardroom with lots of good coffee options nearby. All workshops are based on the Amherst Writers & Artists (AWA) method to ensure a safe, structured environment.

Writers’ Boot Camp and The Finishers are currently in progress. Summer 2018 workshop details will be posted in early May.
