We are very excited to present this terrific opportunity for a series of writing workshops in Sointula with our January artist in residence Keagan Hawthorne! The workshops will take place over 3 Monday evening sessions in January, and the cost for all three sessions is only $17. We would also like to host a public presentation on the last Monday of the month if participants are interested (more info on that will follow.) 

Workshop dates/times:
Monday January 9th, 16th, and 23rd, from 7 - 9pm
Public presentation: Monday January 30th, 7-8pm (details to follow)

Please register soon by emailing sointulaartshed@gmail.com, or by calling 250 974 4234. If possible, also please send us your email address, as Keagan will have some materials to send you before the first workshop. 

Each workshop will include a discussion about some of the techniques of writing, illustrated with readings from selected texts. There will be an opportunity for some free writing, as well as a round-table where participants are invited to read their writing and receive constructive comments from others. Participants are free to work in whichever form/genre they feel most comfortable.

Keagan Hawthorne has a degree in Folklore from Memorial University and currently lives in Victoria. He has led several past writing workshops through public schools and libraries.
