Come join the Asian Canadian Writers' Workshop (ACWW) and the Aboriginal Writers Collective West Coast on Saturday October 13 - 9:00 am - 12:00 pm for a themed workshop on ancestors.

Instructors: Joanne Arnott & Fiona Tinwei Lam

The actual and imagined lives of our ancestors can inspire wonderful writing in any genre. In this workshop, participants will embark on a journey that will delve into the past, and its relationship with both the present and future. We will look at how writers navigate the flowing stream of generations to make memories and historical fact come to life, through narrative, vivid description, dialogue, character and other literary means. This workshop will provide a safe space to start or continue to explore ancestral linkages and dislocations that can inform your present or future writing projects.
