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, August 23, 2014 

Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon (Registration starts at 9:30 a.m.)  

Location: Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute  

Instructor for English:  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.
