Write What you Observe, a workshop on observation and perspective for writers – Saturday, October 20th, 2018.
Then in October, we’re calling all writers to attend our first adult workshop of the season. Also taking place at Sho Art Spirit and Performance, the workshop takes place from 10 am to 4pm and covers a variety of worthwhile topics taught by professionals in the industry. The morning starts off with Security Agent Hunter Kersey, and Literary Agent Cyle Young, discussing skills of observation and how to make use of them. They will also cover describing types of weapons. And then after lunch, Cyle Young will instruct on the use of deep third person perspective in writing and local mystery Author John Schlarbaum will finish the day off by discussing his experience as a private eye and an author. The cost for this workshop is $75. Registration is available on our website.
We also have another Taste of Literature event in the works and two contests, as well as a coming announcement about an award we will be hosting. The next workshop will be in November and will cover such topics as world-building, sword-fighting, and sci/fi fantasy writing. We will be sure to keep you posted as more information becomes available!
