    Writing Your Memoirs an afternoon of writing with Yvonne Blomer, City of Victoria Poet Laureate and author of Sugar Ride: Cycling from Hanoi to Kuala Lumpur a travel memoir published by Palimpsest Press in 2017.

    Have you done some travelling and always wanted to write about it? How about experiences from life that your children and grandchildren love to hear about? Join Yvonne for an afternoon of writing and reading. The class will include warm up activities that will help you explore the what of your writing as well as readings and assignments that focus on language and descriptive detail. There will be opportunities to ask questions of Yvonne, to meet other writers and to explore your life stories. Come with paper and pen (or a computer) and lots of energy to read, write and share if you are willing.
