Newport: Prose P90X with Tex Thomson

May 20, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Tex Thomson in Newport

Do your sentences sag? Does your description drag? Or is your manuscript simply struggling to lose those last 5,000 words? Never fear! Now you can trim and tone your prose in a fearless, fun session that’s guaranteed to leave your work leaner, cleaner, and meaner than ever before. Author Tex Thompson will show writers how to take their words from flab to fab at the May 20 meeting of Willamette Writers’ coast branch.

The free workshop, titled Prose P90X, takes place from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Newport Public Library. Participants should come prepared to do some writing exercises and have fun with words.

She has been blazing a trail through writers’ conferences, workshops, and fan conventions around the country as an endlessly energetic one-woman stampede.
