Inprint Community Stories Writing Event: My Chopstick

Sunday March 28, 2021 4:00 pm

This event is free, but registration is required. The Zoom login details for the meeting will be emailed on Thursday, March 25 to those that register through Eventbrite.

Inprint invites members of the Houston Taiwanese Community Center to a creative, interactive, and fun story writing event, in connection with the mural project “Time in a Tide Pool.” Focusing on chopsticks, participants will be inspired to share their own stories and take the first step in putting those stories on the page, a rewarding personal experience and a great resource for future generations. The writing event will be led by Houston writer Josie Mitchell. Translation and assistance will be provided by Patrick Huang.

If you have any questions, please email info@inprinthouston.org.
