Would you take a writing workshop with this man?

In case you missed yesterday's Globe and Mail, where this slightly doctored photo turned up in the Books Section, Our Hero will soon teach Narrative Non-Fiction at the University of Toronto Summer Writing School. It's an intensive, one-week, multi-genre program that runs this year July 15 to 19. Other instructors include Dennis Bock, Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer, Marina Nemat, John Bemrose, Ken Babstock, Norman Snider, Alissa York, Joy Fielding, and Mariko Tamaki. They're teaching everything from historical fiction to screenwriting and writing a bestselling novel. If you're interested, you might be wise to act ASAP. The photo is courtesy of Matthew Plexman, who is secretly a magician.
