Beth's writing classes - one student's success story

MY MEMOIR AND CREATIVE NON-FICTION CLASSES START NEXT WEEK at both U of T and Ryerson, and there's room. In fact, so much room, there's a danger of cancelling. If you want to learn to tell your own story, this is where you should go. Check this website under "Teaching" for links to both programs.

U of T student Maggie Jansen came to my class for two consecutive terms and has a beautiful piece in today's "Globe" to show for it. She wrote it for class and then rewrote it for us, and I suggested she submit it to the paper. It's a brave piece of writing, and I'm proud of her.

Floating my way to oblivion 
If it doesn't come up because the "Globe" is trying to "monetize" their site, please go to "Life" and then click on "More stories."

Maggie wrote to me yesterday, "I am excited — it has always been a dream of mine to be published, but I never thought it would happen, until now, 56 years old — thanks to your being such a wonderful, amazing teacher, I see my writing in print. Wow!"

Please let me know if you need more information about my classes. Hope to see you next week.
