This writing workshop, facilitated by poet and food writer Sean Wai Keung, will look at community food, celebration cooking, and positive local food stories. Through a series of reflections and exercises, participants will be invited to write, draw, think, make, talk, and celebrate community food. No writing experience is necessary but please feel free to bring along any recipes or cooking tips that you'd like to share. The workshop will end by inviting participants to collectively form a small zine that will be shared among the group.
