YWW Southern OR- Reflecting on Audience and Purpose to Super-charge Your Writing

May 14, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Reflecting on Audience and Purpose to Super-charge Your Writing with  Benjamin Gorman

It seems like this would be a heavy topic. Why do we write? Who do we write for? We’ll discuss some options and models from famous authors, and then contemplate how purpose and audience can add an extra jolt to your writing! Join Author Benjamin Gorman for a fun, interactive workshop on Saturday, May 14th, from 10-11:30 am at the Josephine County Library in downtown Grants Pass, or you can attend online by signing up for our email list at: http://eepurl.com/hRubBf
