Learn to write a play with Ruth Kozak in Port Coquitlam

The PoCo session on Saturday, Feb. 4 is the first time the Tri-City Wordsmiths has hosted a workshop for aspiring playwrights.

If you’ve wanted to write a screen play or a short skit, but never had the chance, the Tri-City Wordsmiths has a workshop to help you get the creative juices flowing.

On Saturday (Feb. 4), playwright, journalist, historical novelist, poet and writing instructor Ruth Kozak will be at the Terry Fox Library (2150 Wilson Ave., Port Coquitlam) for an in-person session called “The Play’s the Thing: How to Create One.”

Registrants can also tune in online for the presentation, which includes Jay Hamburger, the artistic director of Theatre in the Raw, a Vancouver-based company.

And, at the end of the workshop, participants will be invited to pen a one-act play.

A prolific travel writer, Kozak started her writing career at the Vancouver Sun.

Her writing credits, as well as her blog links, can be viewed via

Spokesperson Pandora Ballard said it’s the first time the Tri-City Wordsmiths has hosted a playwrighting event.
