“Let’s Write Stories! (aka Making Stuff Up)” Willamette Writers Monthly Workshop with Sue Fagalde Lick
Willamette Writers Coast Branch continues its free Writers-on-Writing workshops on Tuesday, August 21, 2012, at the Newport Public Library from 7-8:30 pm with local author and writing instructor Sue Fagalde Lick leading a writing workshop entitled, “Let’s Write Stories! (aka Making Stuff Up).”
Can one word or phrase spark a whole story? Sue Fagalde Lick believes it can. To prove it, she will host a workshop in which she will demonstrate through a serious of non-intimidating writing exercises how to find a character, a setting, and a plot through one word or phrase. Bring paper, pens, and a sense of humor.
Sue Fagalde Lick, who lives in South Beach, is known mostly for her nonfiction, but she has also published a novel, Azorean Dreams, and numerous short stories, including “The Day Father Jose Lost His Voice,” which was nominated by The Bellingham Review for a Pushcart Prize.
After many years as a newspaper reporter and editor, Lick earned her MFA in creative writing at Antioch University Los Angeles and refocused her career on creative nonfiction, poetry and fiction. Her sixth published book, Childless by Marriage, has just been released in paperback and Kindle e-book formats. For more information, visit http:/www.suelick.com.
