Is Writing On Your Mind?

Stop thinking about it, and start writing!

Do you live in the Hamilton/Wentworth area? Is writing on your mind, or is it your passion, or simply something you would like to try? Come out to Turner Park Library’s Live Writing Workshop, hosted by Viga Boland, author of No Tears For My Father. Discover the poet, memoir-ist, blogger, or fiction-writer in YOU.

Is Writing On Your Mind?

This workshop is for all writers of all genres but, if you, like me, are caregiver to a child with FASD, then I know you have a lot to say. So, come to the session and write it out. It won’t hurt, and might even help. If you have not written anything before, then this is a great place to begin. It you write every day then you will have a lot to share. Either way, the session will offer interest and diversity.

I hope to see you there!

When: Mondays, April 18th & April 25th
