Writing Workshops


Our People. Our Places. Our Stories.
Writing Workshops led by Debra Marquart

Have a story to tell, but not sure where to start? Already writing and want some techniques to bring out your best work?  Join us and explore tips to further your writing practice.These hands-on workshops are designed for members of the community interested in honing their writing skills. Each event will include a discussion of the process of researching and writing about family and place, about the different approaches to writing the essay, and will include time to workshop with the authors. We ask that you come with a prepared piece of writing—it need not be long, though it shouldn’t be too short. This workshop is intended for writers at every stage of development.

All are welcome to come and participate or just sit back and listen.   Attendees should bring a notebook and pen/pencil. This workshop is FREE and open to the public.

The writing workshops will be in conducted in two visits to the Heart of America Library – February 8 and February 22 at 1:00 pm. Participants must be able to attend both workshops.  To register please go to ndhumanities.org/our-people-our-places-our-stories2015
