Explore creative writing skills through a workshop being hosted by author Koom Kankesan!
Participants will be provided with reading material from “August: Osage County” (now playing in theatres also) and other selections to read prior to the workshop. During the workshop, Koom will start with an engaging discussion on the writing style of the play, after which participants will start their own creative writing. Attendees will then get the opportunity to express ideas and hear creative processes and stories from Koom and others participants in an intimate setting.
It’s free of charge, and refreshments are provided.
