Imagine Little Tokyo Writing Workshop with award winning author and community leader on Zoom

Join award winning author Naomi Hirahara and Little Tokyo community leader Bill Watanabe for an interactive story writing workshop on Thursday, January 28, 5:00 – 6:00 pm, PST on Zoom.

Participants will learn tips and get advice for writing short stories that they can submit to the eighth annual Imagine Little Tokyo short story contest.

Presented by Little Tokyo Historical Society in partnership with Discover Nikkei, the purpose of the Imagine Little Tokyo short story contest is to raise awareness of Little Tokyo through a creative story that takes place in the historic neighborhood.

The story must be fictional and set in a current, past, or future Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. The short story committee will be specifically looking for stories that capture the spirit and sense of Little Tokyo. Learn more about submitting your story.

RSVPs are required. You will be emailed links and instructions to join our conversation on Zoom. Please confirm that the email that you register with is the best way to reach you. Contact publicprograms@janm.org  if you have any additional questions or specific access concerns.

Discover Nikkei is a project of Japanese American National Museum.
