Communication Coach, Laura Lush’s Bio

Laura Lush has been teaching academic English and creative writing to students and professionals both at home and abroad for nearly 30 years. For 24 years, she taught academic English in the English Language Program in the School of Continuing Studies (SCS) at the University of Toronto. She currently teaches creative writing in the SCS. Laura has an M.A. in English and Creative Writing and an M.A. in Curriculum, Learning, and Teaching from the University of Toronto. She is also an award-winning author of six books. She shares: Words are the tools we use to express ourselves from everyday interactions to the more formalized contexts of business and academia. Knowing how to express ourselves in the most concise and effective way allows us not only to reach our readers more quickly but to translate what we want, need, and hope for them to do in the most efficacious way. We all depend on words for communicating and knowing the best way to use words translates into effective messaging.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
