Find the story inside you and feel empowered to tell it.
About this Event
Join Carla White on November 21 for Wit, Wisdom and Writing.
So, you want to be a writer?
You have a story, many stories in fact. It is said that 81% of the population feels they have a book in them and want to write it. About 5% actually write it, and only 1% publish.
Carla will share her sometimes painful, often relevant, and frequently funny experience as a writer to encourage participants to step into their artistic, creative self.
“Even if you don’t want to write the next bestseller but feel inspired to be a writer, then this workshop is for you to explore all aspects of the literary arts.”
Expect discussions around:
What stops people from writing
Writing as therapy
Creative cures for writer’s block and blank page syndrome
Artists of all experience levels and disciplines are welcome.
FREE – ACWB Members
$30 – General Public (admission includes a free 1-year ACWB membership)

Health & Safety
With consideration for everyone’s health and safety, participants will be required to wear masks for the duration of the workshop and maintain six feet apart.
About The Artist In Residency & Mentorship Program
This iteration of AiR sees Carla White engaging as the Fall 2020 Artist in Residence, and aims to support Carla in developing a script dramatizing the events, demographics, learnings, and community-building that arose out of the 2016 Horse River Wildfire.
As part of Carla’s journey in the AiR program, she will be offering two workshops that support humour, creativity and writing. Her first workshop is Finding the Funny Faster (October 24, 2020). Wit, Wisdom & Writing is the second workshop of the series.
Carla’s iteration of AiR will end in a stage reading of her final script. Stay tuned for more updates and details about upcoming AiR workshops and performances.
