In the fall of 2010 I did a presentation at the inaugural Specfic Colloquium in Toronto. Not sure if it will have the same kind of impact since you can’t see my very clever slides, and the quality of the video is suspect, but here they are anyway:

Because of a last minute cancellation for the Colloquium in 2017, I was asked to do a repeat performance. An exhaustive fifteen minutes of research on the Internets revealed that although there were some new blog posts and articles on creative writing workshops/courses/programs, it was all pretty much a rehash of what I’d read for my original presentation. So, lazy fellow that I am, I just recycled my first presentation, with a tweak or two to my slides.
