Fiction Writing Workshop: This three-week writing workshop, led by Dr. Susan B. Iwanisziw, will be held at the Elizabeth Taber Library on Tuesday, May 6th, May 13th and May 20th from 6:30-7:30 pm. These workshops are designed for both novice and experienced fiction writers in all genres (suspense, humor, mystery, literary, historical, paranormal, sci-fi, fantasy, etc.) Whether you write short fiction or novels and aim for traditional publishing, self-publishing, or simple self-fulfillment, you will benefit from a review of the writing strategies demanded by a competitive marketplace. The essentials of good fiction writing, including pre-planning, the hook, point-of- view, dialogue, setting, action, and character, will be explained and defined. Additionally, the mechanics of writing for maximum clarity, effect and the “how-to” of critique and revision will all be addressed. Registration is required. Please call the Elizabeth Taber Library at 508-748-1252 to sign up.
