    Do you love to write? Is writing the air you breathe, or is there ink in your veins?

    The Stittsville Creative Writing Group is a collection of people who love to write.

    We meet weekly to read from text we have written on our own time during the previous week, and engage in other writing activities.

    This is not a class on writing, or a workshop for manuscripts. Instead, we are people who love to write and share our works. 

    There are those who mostly listen rather than write, those who write prolifically but only share with the group, and a broad spectrum in between.

    If your interest is in the love of writing, this group may be for you.

    Welcome to Writing Series - Evocative Writing - Wordcraft for Emotional Impact with Amanda O'Gorman.

    The Stittsville Creative Writing Group, in conjunction with the Ottawa Public Library, is pleased to present the Welcome to Writing Series. This is a collection of seminars or workshops with the goal of making you a better writer. Our intent is to foster creativity, literacy, and love of the written word. Members of the SCWG will present on the indicated topic. Registration is required.

    The writer's adage says: don't tell your audience what you want them to know, show them what you want them to see.  You have practiced descriptive writing.  Now, step deeper into writing that is immersive.  Learn to use the tools of all five senses, as well as memory, emotion and soulfulness, to create a moment that your reader can feel, as well as see.  In this seminar we will explore the potential impact of word choice, and why selecting the best word for the moment is like creating a gourmet meal in which all the colours, flavours and aromas must compliment one another for full effect.  This will be a workshop in which you are welcome to create something new, or to rework a previously written piece that you want to take from Descriptive to Evocative.
