CCECS slates writing workshops in July

The University of Hawaii at Hilo College of Continuing Education and Community Service (CCECS) is once again hosting Frances Kai-Hwa Wang for several popular and unique writing workshops in July.

“Dare to Dream: Write your way through reinvention” is part journaling, part business plan with short writing exercises, and is offered July 12. “Ethical Wills: Writing a love letter to your family” is offered July 19. Both classes are scheduled from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. in UCB 113. There is a $50 fee for each class.

Two workshop series are also offered: “Finding your Voice,” from 5-7 p.m. July 8-22 in UCB 113, and Kai-Hwa Wang’s most popular class, “Jumpstart Your Memoir,” from 5-7 p.m. July 10-24 in UCB 113.

Each workshop has three weekly sessions to help participants get started with short writing exercises, learn tips and tricks, including creating a space for writing, writing daily, reading aloud, taking chances with emotion, having fun with humor and flourishes, writing from the heart, cultivating consistency and overcoming barriers. Each workshop series is $50.

Kai-Hwa Wang is a second-generation Chinese American from California who divides her time between Michigan and Hawaii Island. She team-teaches courses on Asian Pacific American civil rights, history, film and media at University of Michigan and University of Michigan Dearborn. She also teaches writing and is a popular speaker on Asian Pacific American, multicultural, diversity, women’s, social justice, and social media issues.
