To encourage creative writing, 2 series of writing workshops, namely "Writing My First Short Story" and "Writing in Search of Self", conducted by Dr. Lo Wai Luk, are being held between May and September 2011 by the Library and the Book Culture Club.
The kick-off ceremony was held on May 28. Executive committee member, Prof. Chan Kwok Bun, shared his passion on writing and how it has become an integral part of his daily life.
Dr. Lo Wai Luk, through reflective activities, helped participants analyze their own selves, discover their uniqueness from different perspectives and enlighten them to try new writing styles.
The dialogs with Mr. Lam Chiu Wing, an HKBU alumnus and well-known media professional, brought another highlight to the event. Mr. Lam talked about his writing journey in television, film and mass media. His sharing on ways to get ideas for writing comical contents gave a hilarious but inspiring ending for the ceremony.
The subsequent sessions of the Book Culture Club Writing Workshops will be held on June 4, June 11, September 3 and September 11.
