A two-day writing workshop at the Vancouver Police Museum
Workshop instructor: Jami Macarty, MFA
November 18-19, 2017 1:00pm-4:00pm each day
What words put you at the scene of your story, memoir, poem? Who dun it? Writing a story, memoir, poem, etc. is a process, like crime scene investigation, that involves purposeful documentation the physical evidence of a scene to illuminate what happened and point to who did it.
In this weekend-long creative writing workshop, writers of all genres will be expert witnesses to their imaginations, conducting a series of forensic investigations with their word-flashlights, word-tweezers, word-sledge hammers, (if necessary to break through a wall to the point of origin for those screams or that terrible smell), and scalpel-pens to find and collect the word-evidence that reveals the DNA, fingerprints, and modus operandi for the characters in their stories, poems, and memoirs.
By the end of this writing-packed, experiment-filled weekend, writers will have a notebook filled with fugitive memories, confessions, hot tips, and solid leads to follow into their stories, poems, and memoirs.
Writers of all backgrounds welcomed
