Coping with adversity. You have a story. Come share it at this CBC writing workshop
Join us to tell your story, your way. Let's learn from each other
How do you cope?
I mean, we've just gone through two years of pandemic. Now we're dealing with inflation and a shortage of rental housing. And even before that, many folks were coping with poverty and so much more.
And yet you keep going.
We want to hear your story. What's more, we'd like to help you write that story yourself.
Join our CBC Calgary writing workshop in September. You don't have to be a professional writer, and don't worry if you think your English isn't great. We're here to help and learn together.
In these four in-person workshops, we will take you through a step-by-step process. We'll even have special guests to share their writing experiences. We'll cover everything from where to begin, how to focus and when a splash of colour can make your story come alive.
You'll get to work with CBC Calgary editor Elise Stolte for one-on-one feedback. By the end, you'll have a rough draft to be proud of, and can even pitch your story to cbc.ca/calgary as one of our special First Person stories.
Best of all, it's free.
The four sessions run each Tuesday evening at the Calgary Central Library, starting at 6 p.m. This one is hosted in partnership with the Women's Centre of Calgary, but all genders are welcome.
Come learn from each other and have your voice heard.
