October 10, 2020 - General Meeting via Zoom
Pack Your Bags: Using Travel to Enhance Your Writing Every time you step outside, you are traveling. Whether it be down the street to a local coffee shop or on a plane to the other side of the world, seeing your story through the lens of travel can greatly enhance your writing. How do travel hijinks such as a fender bender or a missed flight add complications to your story? How does your character feel when returning home for the first time in a long time? How can a character’s development be mirrored in the starting point, transition, and ultimate destination of travel? Explore all this and more in this interactive workshop. Bring your WIPs and your travel experiences for an entertaining discussion! About Hudson Lin Hudson Lin was raised by conservative immigrant parents and grew up straddling two cultures with ofttimes conflicting perspectives on life. Instead of conforming to either, she has sought to find a third way that brings together the positive elements of both. Having spent much of her life on the outside looking in, Lin likes to write stories about outsiders who fight to carve out their place in society, and overcome everyday challenges to find love and happily ever afters. Her books are diverse romances featuring queer and disabled people of color. Lin lives and works in Toronto, the traditional unceded territories of the Huron-Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, and the Anishinaabe, most recently the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nations.
