Writers Workshop! So, You Have a Great Story… A Journey from Page to Publishing

The Peotone Public Library will host a Writer’s Workshop on Saturday, October 7th starting at 10 am and ending at 2 pm.  This workshop will be 4 hours and a light lunch will be provided during the break for those participating in the whole workshop.

Whether you already have a story to tell or are thinking about writing one, author Annalisa Russo will describe her journey from the first word on the page to working with a publisher and what she learned in between. This workshop is designed as an overview of the writing process and the mechanics of writing, including organizing your writing, and planning your writing schedule. Participants will learn how to get their creative ideas down on paper, keep on track, and get to the publishing table. The PowerPoint presentation will also explain how to find an agent/publisher and what to expect after the signed contract. A Q & A session will conclude the presentation.

We are excited to help aspiring new authors.  Information will be provided for a new resource the library offers to our patrons.

October is One Book, One Community for the Kankakee Area Libraries.  Each year all of the local libraries come together to choose a book.  This year the author Jane Austen was chosen instead of a book for the 200 year anniversary of her death. Each library will choose which book they would like to read of hers and what program they would like to present. The Peotone Public Library will have this Writer’s Workshop for our main event. 

Please register for this workshop by calling 708-258-3436 or going to our website www.peotonelibrary.org/calendar and clicking on the event.  This is a free workshop and space is limited!
