Pleased to be leading a workshop at this year’s Surrey International Writers’ Conference. Here’s the official description:
“Award-winning author Renée Sarojini Saklikar leads this session with conversation and writing prompts to help participants explore personal and cultural trauma. Renée will share her personal journey in writing poetry: “children of air india”, un/authorized exhibits and interjections, particularly her approach to invention strategies for telling difficult and painful personal and historical stories. There will be plenty of time for questions and for writing, and maybe a little time for participants to read briefly from their work, should they choose.”
Date: October 20
Location: The Sheraton Guildford, 15269 104th Avenue
I’ll also be hosting a fun and supportive open mic poetry session on the Saturday, at 3:45pm. Looking forward to connect with the writing community!
