Itty-Bitty City Stories Writing Workshop

ITTY-BITTY CITY STORIES

Flash Non-Fiction Writing Workshop
SUNDAY, JANUARY 28, 2018 MANDEL PUBLIC LIBRARY

Every city has a million stories to tell—come write yours! For this creative workshop, bring with you a photo or a memory of an adventure—happy or sad, poignant or funny—that you’ve had in West Palm Beach or any other city. In three fast-paced hours, you’ll turn that memory into a piece of flash non-fiction, creating a small gem of a story. At the workshop’s end, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in an author reading, onstage at the Mandel Public Library, where you can share your story with the city of West Palm!


WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Bring a photo or have a memory in mind so that you can move right into the crafting of your itty-bitty story. Paper, pens, and pencils will be provided, but if you prefer to write on your own laptop or tablet, feel free to bring it with you.

The workshop is limited to 15 participants.

WORKSHOP SCHEDULE

1:00 pm Get inspired by Leslie Gray Streeter, Michael J. Pagán and Victoria Fedden.

2:00 pm Create a short, nonfiction story with the help of our expert teachers

4:00 pm Share your story on stage in the library auditorium
