This spring (2012), I’ll be leading a series of youth writing workshops at the Toronto Public Library, part of the Sophie’s Studio program. The program is name after Sophia Lucyk, a library-lover who endowed the TPL with money to support literacy programs for youth.
My series of workshops come with the suitably ridiculous title, The Imaginarium of Dr. Weston, which I’m certain will compete favourably with a certain similar-sounding and ill-fated movie from recent memory. Here’s the description from the TPL website:
“Award-winning author Robert Paul Weston will get your creative juices flowing, and improve your writing. He will introduce you to creativity games and writer’s block-busters, and uncover the secrets of writing. Space is limited. Please register at the branch or call 416-395-5630. For children 9 and up.”
