Write your story with comics Kate Lavut

The Regional Association of West Quebecers is pleased to partner with the Quebec Writers' Federation's StoryScaping project to offer a 3-part workshop series, Write Your Story With Comics!, with Kate Lavut.

This series is open to youth and seniors and will take place on Thursdays, February 10, 17, and 24, from 7:00-9:00 pm. Sessions will take place via Zoom and the meeting information will be shared leading up to the workshops.

You don't need to be an artist to enjoy this comic-making workshop for youth and seniors. All you need is a story you want to tell and the courage to put it down on paper. Drawings can be formal and detailed or simple and expressive.

By the end of the workshop, each participant will have their own eight-page comic book!
