About this Event

Events and Epiphanies: Writing Your Personal Myth

We are a psychic process which we do not control, or only partly direct. – Carl Jung

In this masterclass, we will look at how to write about one’s life experiences as a way of discerning meaning in our lives. In particular, we will look at cultural identity and how it is shaped by the events of our lives, whether these events are part of greater historical narratives of war and displacement or whether the events are personal epiphanies of spiritual or artistic truth

Sally Ito is a writer, translator and creative writing instructor. She has published three books of poetry, and a collection of short stories. Her latest book is The Emperor’s Orphans, a memoir that looks at her Japanese Canadian family’s history in Japan and Canada.
