In this four-part series, YAO shares creative ways for everyone to activate their imagination, remove blocks and reduce anxiety when facing a blank page, and to craft and structure their works. These techniques can be used by anyone who wants to try out writing, and for a variety of genres (fiction, plays, poetry, film scripts, essays, and other non-fiction works).  

YAO is an award-winning performer and has been leading workshops for students and professional artists for over 10 years now. In 2018, he received the Ontario Arts Foundation Artist Educator Award.
