Jordan Scott is offering a writing workshop on Monday, March 14 that will be open to students, faculty and staff, as well as the local writing community. Scott is currently the Writer in Residence for the SFU English Department.
Monday, March 14th
Harbour Centre, HC 2200
Jumping off from the first workshop offered in February, we will ask: what does it mean to listen? Is it possible to listen in space of trauma?
For this workshop, participants will be taken through exercises in listening designed to deepen our understanding of how listening can change our writing and the way our bodies move in space.
