Your Life, Your City! A Creative Writing Workshop

Event detail
Add to my calendar
 

A creative writing workshop dedicated to exploring and writing about your daily life in an urban environment.

During the session, we will engage with a range of different exercises for boosting both observational skills and creative writing, in order to expand the way we think and write about our lives within the city. We will focus on physical spaces, personal landmarks, and the way we each navigate through the landscape of San Francisco and its multiple languages and idioms.

We'll also be considering how different languages map these spaces in different ways. Bilingual speakers especially welcome!

Please contact the branch to sign up in advance.
