This workshop will explore ways to mine personal experience and create lively, vivid stories which may unfold as poems or prose, and will also explore how such stories may resist or undermine standard cultural narratives.
Participants do not need to have written a memoir or published anything but should have some prior experience with creative writing. During the workshop we will engage in several writing exercises, read and hear responses from the group, and discuss editing techniques.
Registration for the workshop is $40 and includes a one-year subscription to The Capilano Review for you or a friend ($25 value).
Participants will be sent a package of readings related to the workshop to read ahead of time.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for any inquiries. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
