Wesley Robert Lowe has been writing fiction and non-fiction professionally since the early 1990’s. Many of his stories integrate elements of his Chinese heritage: infusing contemporary worlds with ancient mysticism; colluding and colliding worlds that grab readers, keeping them awake at night, long after they’ve turned the last page. Vancouver’s Chinatown is important to him and it figures prominently in his writing, and his community activities. He appreciates and writes in several genres including urban fantasy, action thrillers and family drama. When not writing, he roasts his own coffee and plays his 1908 Steinway Grand Piano.
Vancouver’s Chinatown has figured prominently in Wesley Lowe's work as author, composer, community worker and filmmaker. This workshop will demonstrate the workshop leader’s personal approach to “write what you know,” using Chinatown as an example with methods that can be applied to many situations. No previous knowledge will be necessary but it might be helpful to read the author’s ebook TORMENTED BY GHOSTS available for purchase ahead of time at online retailers or for free, by contacting the author.
