My Roots

The My Roots Workshop is an expanded vision of what education outreach can be. Taking place each year, the writing workshop encourages new immigrants to develop and share their stories of place through a mix of writing exercises and writing craft lessons, the workshop encourages writers at all levels to think imaginatively about those places and landscapes called ‘home’. Workshops are currently facilitated by award-winning author and editor, Doretta Lau.

My Roots is inspired by a partnership in 2018 with Blue Metropolis International Literary Festival supported by the Department of Canadian Heritage.

Registration for the 2021 My Roots Workshop is now closed. Thank you for your interest.
