CALGARY TELUS CONVENTION CENTRE(CTCC) and HYATT - address and driving directions

PRE-REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON JANUARY 11, 2024 AT 8:00P.M. and CLOSE FEBRUARY 11 AT 8:00 P.M.
We have decided to start pre-registration on January 11th to make sure everyone is informed of the start time and has time to check out the sessions as the first week back to school can be quite hectic.
FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK BELOW THE SESSION DESCRIPTION IN SCHED. Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered. The number in the title shows how many will be allowed to attend the session. We do allow more names to be added, but they will be on the waiting list. This is explained on the pre-registration page.

Get Reel || Creative Writing Techniques in Cinema

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Whether they’re packed with quirky quips or seriously sentimental scenes, films and series are among the most heavily consumed forms of literature today. Looking at cheesy rom coms and other blockbusters that any movie snob would turn their nose up at, this workshop will look at the clever moments and hidden gems within the popular cinema world. Using quotes and cinematic moments, we’ll pinpoint examples of creative writing techniques and literary devices that can be used in any writing discipline. Add to this some hands-on activities, and you’ll have a classroom-ready roster of examples with immediate practical application to ground it.
