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: Saturday, September 20, 2014 

Time: 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. 

Location: Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience  

Instructor: Tamiko Nimura 
Tamiko Nimura is a Sansei/Pinay writer who grew up in Northern California and now lives in Tacoma, Washington. She is a regular contributor to Discover Nikkei, Seattle Star, and the International Examiner. Before her freelance career, she taught writing and literature for ten years. She is currently working on a memoir involving her family’s wartime incarceration in Tule Lake.

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 the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience and the Japanese American National Museum.
