Third Verb intensive writing workshops are for those new to writing and for those well versed in the craft.
Enrol in a workshop—from fiction and poetry to blogs and business—and receive three hours of in-class writing instruction from published authors, online feedback of your work, ongoing writing exercises to your inbox, an opportunity to meet other writers, and a well-stuffed swag bag.
Third Verb is the creation of Jessica Kluthe and Jennifer Lavallee. We believe in building community and supporting local authors through offering opportunities to share their expertise, putting their creative works in the hands of readers, and promoting their projects through our networks.
Jessica Kluthe holds a Master of Fine Arts in Writing from the University of Victoria and is a full-time writing instructor at MacEwan University.
In 2013, she was named one of Avenue Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40.
That same year, her book, Rosina, the Midwife, was published and landed on the Edmonton Journal’s list of best sellers for ten weeks. Jessica’s most recent story can be found in Nomfiction:a nonfiction anthology about food.
