About the Workshop

This two-hour workshop guides you to put your personal relationship with your Korean heritage on paper. All feelings and views are welcome whether your relationship is troubled, joyful, or both. The workshop is facilitated by Katti, a writer and creative coach who will introduce her technique, called Writing Tapas. This is a method she developed to make writing easier and yummier by breaking it down into bite-sized chunks. The main part of the workshop is for silent, intimate writing by yourself. Additionally, we will have the space to share our writing, feelings and thoughts, but no obligation to share.

For all writing levels from absolute beginners to experienced.
