TITLE: Writing Life Stories: From Idea to First Draft
DESCRIPTION: Do you have a story to tell? Have you always wanted to write about the events of your life … or maybe use your past as the basis of a fictional short story? Join us for a three-hour workshop called “Writing Life Stories: From Idea to First Draft,” where you’ll learn about some of the basics of writing stories, have lots of time to practice through writing prompts and exercises, and even have the chance to read a portion of your work to get feedback from others. At the end of the workshop, you’ll have a first-draft of a short fictional or memoir piece that you could polish up on your own or use as the basis of a longer work.

WHEN: 1-4 p.m., Saturday, September 9, 2017
WHERE: Frankfort Community Public Library
WHAT TO BRING: pen and paper, or a laptop
COST: $10 per person
