To meet with David individually to discuss any aspect of your written work, we welcome you to visit him at our Centre anytime before April 6, 2018.  His weekly office hours are Wednesday and Thursday from 10:30am to noon.

Or join one of David's writing workshops. The first will take place on Wednesday afternoons from 1:00 to 2:30 from January 31st to February 14th.  It is entitled “Memory Tricks” and will encourage talking (and writing about) that ambiguous border between the stories we think we know of ourselves, and the stories that go beyond that ‘knowing’ into the inventive realm.
