A Writer’s Workshop will be taught by local fiction and non-fiction author Linda Alexander at the Wetumpka Library for three Saturdays in August: 

August 11th:  9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

August 18th: 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

August 25th: 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m  (with special guests Michelle Edwards, and RITA finalist and bestselling author Debbie Herbert)

This course shows how to hear what characters say about their story and about themselves.  You’ll learn to trust characters and see how they facilitate action follow-through...fiction or nonfiction.    Expect to complete this course having brought to life at least one fully defined character, understanding how to allow character knowledge to develop your story.  During the final class, you will hear tips on how to negotiate the field of self-publication.  Bring a notebook and something to write with or a laptop for writing exercises.
