The Making Of A Story & The Writer's Life Interactive Story Time and book reading plus, pick one of the mini-workshops/presentation choices below
1). From idea to first draft: how is a story born? Practical advice, fun exercises and interactive games for the budding writer.
2). Titles: the writer's first chance to hook the reader. How to come up with a great title? What does a title do and what it isn't supposed to do? Title first or story first?
3). My journey as a writer. It all starts with a dream . . . or with someone's random suggestion. In any case, passion is a must. How I found my place with words as an immigrant and non-native English speaker: from hope to rejections to hard work, heartbreak, determination and publication. Lessons learned in overcoming failure.
4). Custom presentation / workshop, tailored to your needs. Please contact me with your preferences.
