In the late 1980’s Ken led a series of workshops in major cities across Canada for the CBC Training Department to find and train visible minority writers for television. This culminated in four CBC Television Arts Performance Showcases that he produced presenting excerpts of the work of 12 writers to members of the film and television industry.

For seven years, he taught the senior screenwriting course at Ryerson University.

He has been a story-editing consultant for students at the Canadian Film Centre.

He taught screenwriting at the Vermont Arts Institute in 2004.

For over 15 years he was an instructor at the Summer Institute of Film and Television organized by the Canadian Screen Training Centre. He has given workshops in intermediate screenwriting, adaptation, and working with a story editor. He was part of their mentorship programme and gave intensive workshops for CSTC in Toronto and Winnipeg.

In 2006 he led an intensive two-week training workshop in writing for a TV series (Jozi-H) in Johannesburg with 10 South African writers.

In 2008 he facilitated a four week screenwriting workshop at the University of the West Indies in St. Augustine, Trinidad.

He often works as a story editor for Women in Film and Television and in 2011 he taught adaptation at the Prince Edward Island Screenwriters’ Boot Camp.

From 2011 – 2013 Ken initiated and taught a series of new courses on screenwriting and story editing at the Toronto Film School .

He continues to do intensive workshops in writing and story editing across the country – most recently for Film Training Manitoba.
