Creative Writing Workshop

I am having a creative writing workshop on Sunday, November 4 from 10-2:30 at the Salem Cross Inn in West Brookfield. The workshop will cover the entire writing and publishing process from how to develop ideas, story structure and creation of atmosphere/location, how to put together a chapter, character development, creating authentic dialogue, the flow of the book and how to hold readers interest. Common problems like overcoming writer’s block will be addressed. The how’s and why’s of publishing will also be covered from self-publishing to finding an agent, to using small publishing houses, to marketing including press releases and author events to increase book sales.

The purpose of the workshop is to help people who want to write but don’t know how to go about it and for those that have written something and need to know how to move ahead.

The cost is $95 and lunch is included. Registration is required. Registration deadline is October 30. To register email or call 413-436-7901.
