For Immediate Release

The College of Continuing Education and Community Service (CCECS) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo once again hosts Frances Kai-Hwa Wang for her unique and popular writing workshops in July. Classes will be held in UH Hilo’s UCB Room 113. Cost for each is $50.

“Dare to Dream: Write your Way through Reinvention” guides participants through simple but powerful methods to tackle big changes or challenges in their lives. This course is part journaling, part business plan with many short writing exercises. The class is held on Tuesdays from July 7-28, 5-7:30 pm.

Kai-Hwa Wang's most popular class, “Jumpstart Your Memoir,” will help participants get started with short writing exercises, tricks, and tips to overcome barriers to writing. Participants will leave the class with beginning drafts of several chapters. Classes will be held on Thursdays from July 9-30, 5-7:30 pm.

Kai-Hwa Wang is a second-generation Chinese American from California who divides her time between Michigan and Hawaiʻi 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.
