Local author and Chamber member Ed Londergan will hold a creative writing and publishing workshop on Sunday, March 12 from 10-2:30 at the Salem Cross Inn in West Brookfield.
The workshop is open to people of all ages especially those that have a story to tell. The workshop is geared to anyone who wants to write and does not know where to start or those that have some writing experience but either haven’t written anything for a while or are not sure what to do next.
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. Also included are writing exercises and group discussion of common issues and problems like overcoming writer’s block.
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 cost is $65 and lunch is included. Registration is required. To register, email Ed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
