Make Something: Surrey Teen Chapbook Workshop

surrey libraries logo

This July, I’ll be running chapbook making workshops for teens at the Fleetwood, Newton, Cloverdale, Guildford, City Centre, and Ocean Park Libraries!

Chapbook-making offers a unique creative experience. Teens will  cut, fold, and collage words and images. Guided by Surrey’s Poet Laureate, Renée Sarojini Saklikar, and other local poets, teens will be inspired with new ways of self-expression. Their works will be exhibited in the teen lounge of City Centre Library in October 2018.

These workshops are made possible by the City of Surrey Cultural Grants program. Thanks also go to local Surrey poets including: Winston Le, Christine Riek, Heidi Greco, and members of the Cedar Bark poetry community.”
