Jan 25 – 29th. A Sunshine Coast Literacy Coalition initiative.
Sechelt Library staff will prepare a beautiful walk, starting at the Library, with pages of exciting, inspiring and delightful children’s books posted along the way. Ages 0 – 5 yrs. You can pick up your daily map from the Library anytime between 10:15 am and 3:00 pm Monday through Friday, January 25 to 29. Your map will guide you through that day’s story and you can come again each day for a new outdoor literacy experience. There will also be prizes!
Whether you write prose, poetry, like to journal, or don’t know yet what form you prefer, come and explore. This workshop will use prompts to help you generate new writing that can be expanded on later. Please have paper and pen handy, as well as 1-2 pages of something you have already written (need not be polished and can be any form). You can bring something written by someone else if you prefer. The language in this writing will be used as raw material for some of the exercises.
Join us on Zoom for this free writing workshop on Saturday, August 29th, from 10:30-noon.
