WEST VANCOUVER STORIES
Write your story. Be published. Leave a legacy.
Do you live, work or go to school in West Vancouver? Do you have a 2020 story to share?
Join me for a FREE writing and publishing opportunity, funded by a West Vancouver Foundation Neighbourhood Grant.
Over three online sessions, we will write 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 you learned about yourself, the significant people in your life, the human race?
Each session will offer strategies and writing techniques to inspire you, to find your unique writer's voice, to bring your stories to life.
We will edit and proofread and then the stories will be compiled and published.
Each participant will receive a copy of the book.
Additional copies will be printed for seniors' homes, libraries and other community organizations.
The project will culminate in a virtual celebration and a series of author talks online.
This is a unique opportunity to document your life stories during this unprecedented time in history. To leave a legacy.
And again - absolutely FREE.
(Contributing writers will also have the option of providing a bio with links to social media.)
NO WRITING EXPERIENCE NEEDED.
Just bring your stories, your curiosity and a willingness to explore.
