About this Event


Accelerate and Brake: Working with Pace


The best storytellers are masters of narrative pacing. Knowing where to accelerate or slow things down in a story is crucial to the flow of a successful narrative. Without good pacing a story is dead on the page - speed things up too much and the reader may feel overwhelmed, slow things down too much and you might bring the story to a halt.

Join Emi Sasagawa, author of Atomweight and 2018 TWS graduate, for a perfectly paced workshop on narrative pacing!

About the Instructor: Emi Sasagawa

Emi Sasagawa is a settler, immigrant and queer woman of colour, living and writing on the traditional, ancestral and stolen territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Selilwitulh Nations.

Her debut novel , by Tidewater Press, tells the story of Aki, a good girl, good student, good daughter from a loving but demanding multiracial family, who, after being triggered by a violent incident, begins picking fights with random strangers. This is a story about mixedness, queerness and power—about reflecting on oppression and privilege, and the ways we take up space in the world.

Emi is a graduate of The Writer's Studio at Simon Fraser University, and is currently completing an MFA in creative writing at the University of British Columbia.
