Free Fall Fridays

Join us each Friday at the Alexandra Writers’ Centre in Inglewood from 10 AM until noon for two hours of fun and inspiring writing exercises. Meet new people, share experiences and just have an all around good time.  

AWCS uses the “free fall” method of creative writing as the basis for all instruction. The free fall method of writing was first introduced by W.O Mitchell, and further refined by Michael Fay when he set up his own creative writing courses.

Free Fall Method of Writing

The free fall method of writing encourages the writer to write without editing as they go. That editorial instinct to edit as you write, common to most writers, can be tempting but also time-consuming and counterproductive.

W.O. Mitchell’s free fall method encourages writers to switch off their inner editor and just write as the thoughts come into their minds, relying on sensory information and memories. The writer can edit after the piece is finished, but during the process, it is essential the writer does not revise his or her work.

These sessions are FREE for members. Non-members may attend for a $5 drop in fee.

Coffee and tea available.
