Reconnect with Your Writing Practice is a workshop for writers who want to rediscover their love of writing or want to deepen their connection to the craft. The most important thing is that writing is not a chore—it can be a source of joy.

With writer-in-residence Doretta Lau, the author of the short story collection How Does a Single Blade of Grass Thank the Sun?, shortlisted for the City of Vancouver Book Award, longlisted for the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award, and named by The Atlantic as one of the best books of 2014. While in residence at Historic Joy Kogawa House in September and October 2019, she is writing a comic novel about a dysfunctional workplace called We Are Underlings and a collection of poetry about grief.
