Conference at the Italian Cultural Institute of Montreal at 200, avenue Docteur-Penfield
You have a story to tell, but it’s really painful. You don’t think you can write it, but you will – one word at a time. In this workshop, author Licia Canton uses a number of exercises to help you get started. Space is limited.
