For Immediate Release

The College of Continuing Education and Community Service (CCECS) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo offers Frances Kai-Hwa Wang's unique and popular writing workshops in July.

Dare to Dream: Write Your Way Through Reinvention teaches simple but powerful methods to get ideas onto paper. Part journaling, part business plan, and with many short writing exercises, this course aspires to create the space in one’s head and the courage in one’s heart to take those first steps in any life challenge. Classes are held Tuesdays, July 10 - 31, from 5 – 7:30 p.m. in UH Hilo's Wentworth 9. The cost is $75.

In Writing the Stories of Your Life, participants will learn short writing and reading exercises, tips and tricks, how to overcome barriers to writing, and how to take chances with emotion and creative expression. Classes are held Tuesdays, July 12 – August 2, from 5 – 7:30 p.m. in UH Hilo's Wentworth 9. The cost is $75. A notebook and pen are required for both classes.

Wang is a writer, speaker, activist and multicultural educator who teaches at the University of Michigan. She is the author of Where Lava Meets the Sea-Asian Pacific American Postcards from Hawaiʻi.
