I want to thank Erin Clavier and the Hellertown Library for hosting two writing workshops this summer—both of them were a tremendous success! The workshops focused on the elements of fiction and the craft of storytelling. High School students gathered for two hours on a warm summer night to explore the elements of plot and character, while upper elementary and middle school students met over the course of three days to learn how to use all the elements of fiction to craft page-turning stories! There will be more workshops to come in the fall. Watch this space for more information! If you’d like to receive email updates about upcoming events and workshops—or you’d like to plan one for your organization, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
