Madeline's Workshops

In 2021, Madeline sat on the Summer Reading Committee at her library. It was through this initiative that she was invited to lead her own creative writing workshops for children, which became a recurring program. So far, she's facilitated workshops for Coquitlam Public Library, North Vancouver City Library, and Surrey Public Library.

She is now open to leading workshops at local schools, libraries, etc.
