Self-Publishing Course Added

Hey! We have another announcement. This one about self-publishing. We've got another course starting soon! You asked for it, and here it is! Another online course added to help you make your way through the sometimes intimidating world of self-publishing. This was offered at Camosun, but they had to cancel so I'm taking it back. Click here for full info. For more information on other online courses I teach through Camosun College, visit their Continuing Education website. What I also need from you, gentle reader, is feedback on what types of courses you'd like to see online.…

Hi all. Well it's been an interesting few months hasn't it! I'm slowly moving many of my classes over to online training through zoom. I still have a self-publishing course available right now through Camosun College. (Saturday mornings June 6 to 20.)

Future online workshops/classes may include marketing, self-promotion, tourism writing, content writing for websites, and more!…

Online Classes Now Available

Well it's been quite the year so far, hasn't it. While I was happily writing and teaching away, the world changed. I could no longer go to community centres or colleges to teach writing. Social distancing and online meetings became the norm. My Camosun classes had to be quickly shifted to online. After a few classes through Zoom, I realized it would make life a lot easier for a lot of people if I brought the classes to you, instead of you coming to me. To that end, I am holding online classes through Zoom. You can…

Rebooting Your Muse – Writers’ Retreat May 2019

Writers from all genres and all walks of life will thoroughly enjoy the Rebooting Your Muse Retreat. Back in the summer of 2018 Darcy visited Sooke Harbour Marina and Resort. She spent the night, got to know the staff and went on a fabulous fishing trip. Darcy was inspired by the calmness of being so close to the ocean, and all the great nature walks she could take. She knew then that she would be back, and bringing people with her. The Rebooting Your Muse retreat is a great long-weekend in May (17-20) of connecting with other…

Camosun Courses – Fall 2018

I can't believe I neglected my "news blog" for a year! That's one of the problems with being a writer. You write for everyone else and then, poof, no time for yourself. And that's okay! It means I've been really busy. So busy in fact that I have too much to put in one post. Here's hoping I make another post soon, maybe even later today! I've travelled all over BC, meeting fantastic people and writing their stories. Camosun Courses - Fall 2018 I've also taught so many great classes at Camosun and now, there are new…

Writing Classes in Victoria – Fall 2017

Back to school means more great writing classes for you! I had such a great time teaching in Kelowna at Okanagan College. Now I'll be creating some great memories here in Victoria. Last winter, my first lass at Camosun College was great. It taught me there are just as many amazing and talented new writers here on the island as there were in the Okanagan. It's been a pleasure learning about my new home, and gathering new resources for my students. Royal Roads and Camosun Writing Classes Both Royal Roads and Camosun College have accepted me as…
