The purpose of the TORONTO NEW SCHOOL of WRITING is to offer creative and critical writing workshops facilitated by industry professionals toward audience development for contemporary experimental literature. The collective is invested in framing this as a community-building, rather than an academic, endeavor. Workshops held by the TORONTO NEW SCHOOL of WRITING will give students an opportunity to gain a critical understanding of innovative or experimental literature as well as view that literature as a writing practice.
Artistically, participating writers specialize in a range of genres that fall under the broad umbrella of experimental poetry or fiction, including but not limited to concrete, sound, list, translation, performance, L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E, narrative, conceptual and long poems.

Students will have the satisfaction of generating texts over the duration of the workshops and will be able to locate their art within the larger context of experimental poetry.
