Two-time National Magazine Award-winning poet Julie Bruck, who also has a Governor General Literary Award in her impressive collection of honours, will lead a nine-week “Fearless Poetry Workshop” this fall in San Francisco, part of highly regarded Writing Salon where she has been an instructor for the past eight years. Yes, the catch is you have to be in San Francisco to take the workshop, which runs from October 17-December 19. More information at The Writing Salon website.
In 1999 Ms. Bruck became the first person to win consecutive Gold National Magazine Awards in the Poetry category, winning for a collection of poems published in the Malahat Review after having won the top prize in 1998 for her work in Carousel. She has been an NMA finalist four times and has also served on the jury for the poetry award.
