Through support from a Neighbourhood Small Grant, Paula is offering short free writing workshop for people who have a story to tell. She writes, "We will be looking at the stories, what format they would work best in, how to start writing those stories, we’ll do some writing exercises, and share our progress with the group for feedback. When the workshop is over I will publish the stories in an ebook titled 'Our Community Stories Surrey,' and each participant will get a copy. I’m offering two separate sessions, so each person can register for one by sending me an email."

The March 27 program has been cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns.
