Telling Your Story — Wednesday October 23
In this informal workshop, participants will discuss the need to write our stories and some common obstacles to getting words onto the page. Led by Laura Rock Gaughan, writers will consider selected examples from literature, with a focus on the techniques the authors used to create compelling characters, scenes, and conflicts, and practice writing using prompts. Whether your chosen form is fiction, non-fiction, or poetry, you’ll take away fresh words and ideas to continue developing on your own. All welcome.
Haliburton County Public Library, Dysart Branch. 5:30 p.m.
