Two Vancouver communities come together to offer writing workshops


That’s the theme for an upcoming series of workshops in Vancouver, BC. A cool theme, but what’s even more awesome, is that the workshop is free for young writers.  Here’s the scoop—

Aboriginals West Coast Writers Collective and the Asian Canadian Writers’ Workshop is hosting a series of writing workshops and reading events on Saturday October 13 and Sunday October 14th at the Strathcona Community Centre (601 Keefer Street) in Vancouver, BC. Writing from the workshops maybe selected to be published in an upcoming issue of Ricepaper magazine.

We will also have a chance to showcase the writing in two reading events. We will host a public reading on Saturday October 13th at Rhizome Cafe (317 East Broadway) and Sunday October 14th at NEC Native Education College (285 East 5th Ave).

Workshops fees are 1 workshop for $30, 2 workshops for $40, and 3 workshops for $50, the Youth workshop is free!

We want to celebrate community and cultural collaboration between Asian Canadian and Aboriginal communities in the Greater Vancouver area.
