*Please note that the writing circles will not meet on November 10th and December 1st and will be rescheduled for December 8th and 15th respectively.

4-part workshop series, 'In Your Own Voice, In Your Own Words'

Published Sep 8, 2021

QWF
Unleashing the imagination – Are we trained to use our imagination…or is it neglected?
Join us for a 4-part workshop series, 'In Your Own Voice, In Your Own Words', on September 21& 28 and October 5 & 12 from 3:30-5:30 pm.
Whether recounting a love story or an adventure, a true-life story or one that’s totally imagined, the participants will be free to improvise and adapt as they are guided through the creative process of bringing a story to life and telling it in their Own Voice and their Own Words.
Patti Warnock will lead the series. Her repertoire (for the young at heart of all ages) consists not only of traditional style tales, but also of her own creations, where reality and fiction walk hand in hand, and which are based on the reality of everyday life events, and on her own childhood in rural Quebec and in northern Canada.
Space is limited! To register, email oec@westquebecers.ca or call 819-682-9602.
