The workshop is designed as a catalyst to explore Nisei stories through writing. In particular, we will focus on the Nisei camp experience -- both the wartime incarceration and post-war resettlement. We invite Nisei to come on their own or to bring a son, daughter, grandchild, or friend to share in the process.  We invite Sansei to help write down and remember our Nisei family stories. We invite you be a part of an on-line writing collective for the posting and sharing of Nisei Stories.

 
The workshop is a continuing thread of Nisei writing workshops lead by Brian Komei Dempster that has resulted in two publications, Making Home from War: Stories of Japanese American Exile and Resettlement (Heyday, 2011) and From Our Side of the Fence: Growing Up in America's Concentration Camps (Kearny Street Workshop, 2001).  "Collecting Nisei Stories" receives funding support from the California State Library - Civil Liberties Public Education Program, which allows the workshops to be offered free of charge.
