CSI: Creative Scene Investigation Writing Lab with author Jami Macarty

November 18 @ 1:00 am - November 19 @ 4:00 pm

$160.00 - $185.00

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

New, experienced – Come one! Come all! To the writing laboratory
