Want to make your Canada story a legacy? Surrey Poet Laureate Renée Sarojini Saklikar can guide

reneeSurrey’s Poet Laureate, Renée Sarojini Saklikar, will guide teens and seniors in writing short stories about their lives in Surrey in two separate workshops, co-hosted by Surrey Libraries and PICS (Progressive Intercultural Community Services Society).

Seniors will share their early experiences and memories either as long-time Surrey residents or as newcomers/settlers to/in Canada, using the prompt, “I remember when” and teens will write to the prompt, “My best day/my worst day, growing up/living in Surrey.” Teens will be invited to share their response to the stories of the Seniors. Completed works will be published in a Legacy Project anthology.

This is a great opportunity for Surrey community members to share stories and explore their writing while contributing to a legacy for Surrey. Light refreshments will be provided and registration is required.
