Stories are all around us and the way we tell them shape our understanding of events, memories and experiences. When written down, small, insignificant moments can become touching and poignant.

Through poetry, prose, fiction or non-fiction you can find your creative voice at Shadbolt Centre. Our Literary Arts classes offer opportunities to explore the written word at any age. Young writers learn to play with language teens can experiment with different forms and adults discover new possibilities within a supportive environment.
