About this Event
Join writer/filmmaker Justin Ducharme for a free form writing workshop designed to help writers explore and understand the development of character(s) and story. Ducharme invites writers to disengage from self imposed caution and judgment — allowing themselves to access generative ideas through random free write exploration.
Free to the public, with limited tickets available.
Please remember to bring a laptop, or pencil and paper. Pens as well as food or drink are not permitted in the room.
Held in the Emily Carr University Library Artists' Books Room, 520 E 1st Ave, Vancouver, BC
