The Southern Oregon Willamette Writers will meet at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 17th in the Ben Bones room of the Josephine Community Library in Grants Pass. Our speaker, Teresa Stover, will discuss Writing for Hire vs. Writing for Heart. Working as a writer-for-hire can enhance (and detract from) your creative writing. In this workshop, you’ll gain an overview of technical writing as one example of making a living with words while also propelling your journey as a writer of stories and creative nonfiction. Please arrive promptly as the presentation will begin at 1:15 p.m.
