YWW: Tips on Writing Historical Fiction with Cherie Coon

February 11, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Young Willamette Writers Presents Cherie Coon

Tips on Writing Historical Fiction

During the workshop, students will explore the crucial elements of writing historical fiction. The presenter will offer tips on making your writing more believable. Time will be spent on some of the does and don’ts of successful writing. Students will have an opportunity to ask questions and share ideas.


Cherie Coon is a retired educator. For twenty-three years she worked in Germany teaching the children of the American military stationed there. During that time she was an active volunteer at some of the archeological reconstruction villages which she used as a foundation for her YA books. Since her retirement, she has concentrated on her writing and is the author of five YA historical novels set in the Stone Age. She lives in Grants Pass with her husband, David.

This meeting will be held on February 11th, in person at the Josephine Community Library, Grants Pass branch, located at 200 NE C St in Grants Pass. We will be offering virtual attendance through ZOOM for those unable to attend in person. Meet and greet time from 10:30-10:45 am, followed by our workshop from 10:45-11:45 am, and ending with Q & A time & book signing time from 11:45am-noon.
