Poetry Workshop with Juliane Okot Bitek
Join us on Saturday, October 27 for a poetry workshop with our 2018 Writer-in-Residence, Juliane Okot Bitek!
Through a series of reflection and writing exercises, this workshop will guide you to write or edit your own poems. Come and work on new material or polish older work and set yourself on the path to redemption. Your poems will thank you and your sleepless nights will disappear (for at least a week).
October 27 from 1:30PM to 4:30PM
The Arts Factory
281 Industrial Avenue, Vancouver BC
