WEST VANCOUVER STORIES
23 West Vancouver writers + 1 crazy year = an extraordinary book
During three Zoom sessions, we shared our stories.
What has it been like living in this community during 2020? What has changed? What has stayed the same?
What have been the challenges? The unexpected highlights? What about friendships? Family?
What have we learned about ourselves, the significant people in our lives, the human race?
Each session offered strategies and writing techniques to inspire, to uncover each writer's unique voice, to bring the stories to life.
The initiative will culminate in a virtual celebration and a series of author talks online.
Copies of West Vancouver Stories: The Pandemic Project will be made available to seniors' homes,
libraries and other community organizations, as well as to each contributing writer.
This unique opportunity to document our life stories during this unprecedented time in history was funded by
a West Vancouver Foundation Neighbourhood Grant.
Book launch & virtual author talks: February/March 2021 (dates to be confirmed)

I am grateful to live, work and write on the unceded traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
