Where: 
Columbus Public Library, 223 W. James Street, Columbus WI

This is part-one of a three night workshop.

In two-hour classes on three separate evenings, author and writing educator Valerie Biel will guide writers of all skill levels through a discussion on writing topics, idea generation, and story marketability before delving into the main elements of good storytelling, basics of plotting, character development, effective dialogue writing, editing and more. There will be time in each session for questions and fun, short writing exercises. These classes will focus on novel-length fiction, memoir, or narrative nonfiction for either children or adult audiences. Picture book authors are welcome and will benefit from much of the course as well.

The classes will be from 5:30 – 7:30 pm on March 24, April 28, and May 26 in the Library meeting room.

Attendees should be sure to bring paper/pen or a laptop for notes and writing exercises. Workshop packets will be handed out at each session. Extra packets will be available at the library if anyone has to miss a session.
