Youth Writing Masterclass
with Francine Cunningham
Led by award-winning Indigenous writer Francine Cunningham, this masterclass will help you learn to connect with your memories to create a visceral piece of writing that springs alive with sensory details. We will then be using our writing to craft personal zines that showcase the words we have carefully crafted. Francine has over ten years experience teaching writing, visual art, and zine making. If you feel inspired please bring any art making supplies to enhance your zine with some visual art.
