Writing Workshop with Traci Skuce

The Habit of Showing Up: A 3-Hour Writing Exploration with Traci Skuce


Expand your capacity to notice your world by showing up to the page. In this 3-hour workshop, we will escape the tyranny of not-good-enough by shifting our lens and delving into the more inclusive and complex world of seeing and writing. We'll use meditation to ground us into the here-and-now, and then engage in a series of a prompt-based practice to spark and fan our creative fires. There's a synergy and aliveness that comes from writing in a group, and we'll foster this by inviting everyone to read aloud to the group.


No experience necessary! Please bring a notebook and pen. We will be writing and writing and writing.

Investment: $60 ($30 deposit is required)

Since then she's made writing a habit and that habit has helped inspire poems, stories and essays. Her work has appeared in many literary magazines, and in 2016 she won the Sheldon Currie Prize for Fiction, she was also a finalist in the 2015 CBC Creative Nonfiction awards. In 2020, her collection of short stories, Hunger Moon, will be released by NeWest Press.
