Free women’s writing program

Culture Chats is offering a new intercultural women’s writing program that invites participation from women interested in literary arts, storytelling, community reporting and engagement. Our theme is ‘everyday life stories in the community’. The program runs from May 2019 till end of the year and there is no cost to participate. The goal is to support development of stories and articles related to community life as viewed through a multicultural lens.

Participants will be provided some training and support in a group setting with an objective to also enable intercultural communication. A commitment of about two hours per week for about twelve weeks will be required. Please email for further information and registration. Spots are limited and prior registration will be required to participate.

A previous writing group member, Blossom has this to say about her experience, “Culture Chats has provided me with an opportunity to feel at home in the company of women who have similar yet varied experiences; women who have an eye on their past and a hopeful outlook to their future…who are so brave to share their thoughts, challenges, aspirations and stories.”

Another participant adds, “The sharing and social interaction is particularly welcome because writing can be lonesome.  It is wonderful to get together on Saturday mornings for two hours to hone our writing skills and head home buzzing with a dozen different thoughts after our intercultural conversations”

Culture Chats would like to gratefully acknowledge the support and collaboration of our sponsors and esteemed partners including the Govt. of BC, Vancity and other partners.
