The Whistler Writing Society is hosting its annual general meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 14, open to anyone who wants to learn more about how they can get involved with the organization.
Set to take place in-person at the Whistler Museum with a free “pizza and chat” from 5:30 to 6 p.m., Zoom participants can join remotely from 6 to 6:30 p.m. for the meeting.
Afterwards, stick around for a free oral storytelling workshop with Lil’wat Nation storyteller Tanina Williams. Learn what makes a great story and how to make an impact ahead of applying to share your own story at the Whistler Writers Festival’s oral storytelling event on Oct. 13.
For that event, eight local storytellers will be selected to share their stories alongside Williams and the Squamish Nation’s Tsawaysia Spukwus. Those chosen will receive $100 to share their two-to-four-minute tale.
