Reflective Writing: A Workshop on Cross-Cultural Writing

Please note this workshop will take place over two sessions:

  • Session 1: Wednesday, March 10, 2021 @ 1:30-3:00 p.m.
  • Session 2: Tuesday, March 16, 2021 @ 1:30-3:00 p.m.

This online workshop is being produced in partnership with the Atwater Writers Exhibition.

All are welcome.

Limited to 15 participants.


How do you create characters and situations that have a ring of truth to them when the stories you want to tell are not from your own background or culture?

This workshop will give participants a deeper knowledge about the pros and cons of cross-cultural writing and a chance to hear established writers talk about their own experiences with and advice about writing about peoples of other cultures and realities. Participants will be able to access a blog with workshop materials including videotaped interviews and writing examples. The blog will also provide a platform for participants to discuss issues both during and between the workshop sessions and to post writings of their own for feedback.

All you need to bring is curiosity and a sense of exploration.


This is a FREE workshop. To register, please click here to email Elise Moser.
