There will be lots of time for questions and discussion around your individual ideas.

Her scripts have won several awards and her short, Chopin’s Heart, was a NSI Drama Prize winner and part of Telefilm’s Not Short on Talent showcase at Cannes 2016.

Workshop cost is $100 ($75 for Manitoba Editors’ Association members) and online registration is encouraged.
