Saturday, April 7, 2018

Central Point City Hall Council Chambers, 140 S. Third Street, Central

Morning Presentation

10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.  Free to members, $10 for visitors

What are “challenging characters”?  Does it make a difference if the author is writing fiction or non-fiction?  What about telling the truth or being politically correct?  Learn the answers to these questions and more in Linda Atwell’s morning presentation.

Workshop

1:30 – 3:30 p.m.  $25 for members, $30 for guests ($35 all day)

In the afternoon, participants will have a chance to share their writing, generated from prompts.  Then, the group will discuss what was learned from each reader.  It’s a great opportunity to get some practice writing challenging characters, and to get immediate feedback.
