Sunday May 31st
PANDORA’S COLLECTIVE AND STARBUCKS PRESENT A SPECIAL EVENING: WRITING ABOUT PLACE
Facilitator and Host: Shannon Rayne
Starbucks Coffee Canada
5504 Cambie St, Cambie and 39th
This workshop will focus on writing about place, as an extension of writing about the self. When we write our unique observations about place (cafes, cities, etc.) we give concrete images to our perspectives, emotions and state of mind at the time. This 60 minute workshop will give participants new techniques to approach writing about place, through hands-on-exercises. This workshop is designed for poets, and creative nonfiction writers of all levels including nature writing, food writing, or memoir.
There will be an open mic to follow for workshop participants.
Shannon Rayne is poet, creative nonfiction writer and teacher. Her project “Coffee Stained” is a collection of poems about cafe culture in Vancouver. Part travelogue, part dialogue with the muse over coffee, “Coffee Stained” takes place in 26 cafes in Vancouver and reflects both the internal changes of the narrator, with the physical changes of the rapidly growing city.
