Free Adult, Young Adult Writing Workshops

“Everything you wanted to know about writing but were afraid to ask...”

January 8, 2020 - Have you ever had the desire to write poetry, short stories, or even the “great American novel” ? Or, do you have a strong family history that you would like to write down to pass on to your children or grandchildren? How many times have you read something and said to yourself, “I could write that.”

These workshops will present a brief overview of the various styles of writing, including handouts and references for possible writing projects. The only requirement is a desire and willingness to write. Consider the workshops as an “appetizer” for your future writing projects. 

Monthly Meetings beginning Saturday, January 11, 2020, from 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm at the Fannie Brown Booth Memorial Library.

Topics covered: Journaling, Writing Memoirs, Non-Fiction, Fiction, Newpaper reporting, and Poetry. Materials needed for workshop: Notebook, pens or pencils – handouts will be provided with each session.

*Workshop facilitated by Terri Lacher, Columnist, Author/Illustrator, and Speaker. Works included in Chicken Soup for the Soul, We The People of Shelby County, Becoming Women of Worth, the Light and Champion, Around the Town, and author/illustrator of children’s books.
