What’s in a name? 

Discover Nikkei is launching a new writing series called “Nikkei Names: Taro, John, Juan, João?” to explore what your name says about you, and the origins of Nikkei names. 

In conjunction with this series, we are offering FREE one-time writing workshops in multiple cities and countries to encourage submissions to Nikkei Names. These workshops are designed to help students of all writing levels develop a point of view, characters, and a narrative voice to tell their stories about their names. This can include family names, given names, and even nicknames! 

Please join us at our workshops and share your stories about your name on DiscoverNikkei.org!  

Date: Sunday, September 28, 2014 

Time: 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.  

Location: Orange County Buddhist Church (Room #208)  

Instructor:  Patricia Wakida   
Patricia Wakida is a writer, artist and community historian currently based in Los Angeles, CA. She is the editor of two publications on the Japanese American experience, Only What We Could Carry: The Japanese American Internment Experience, and Unfinished Message: the collected works of Toshio Mori, and has worked in the publishing industry for almost twenty years. She is the editor of a forthcoming book on Los Angeles entitled LAtitudes: An Angelenos' Atlas, and is currently writing a biography of City Lights bookstore co-owner and bohemian Nisei, Shigeyoshi Murao. 

Enrollment limit:  20 people 

To guarantee your space, please RSVP by emailing us at Editor@DiscoverNikkei.org and include your name, contact information, and the date / location for the workshop that you would like to attend.  

Bring:  
Paper and pencils will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own writing tools. A photograph of yourself is also suggested, both as a writing prompt and for your author bio. Most importantly, participants are expected to bring an enthusiasm for experimenting with voice and form, and a willingness to explore the theme of Nikkei Names for on-line publication at the Discover Nikkei webpage.

* This program is co-sponsored & co-hosted by Project Kokoro, the Orange County Budhhist Church, and the Japanese American National Museum.
