Mastering Writing Workshop

Mastering Writing for Adults
Getting To the Heart of Our Story

How do we find the stories in  our  lives?  How do we discover meaning in those stories?  And what are some good  strategies to write about them?
This is the subject of a  unique all-day writing workshop sure to inspire and instruct.  Open to committed  writers of all genres and experience levels.
This workshop will be led by  Susan G. Weidener, an editor and author of Again in a Heartbeat, a memoir of love, loss and dating again, and Cynthia J. McGroarty, an English instructor at DeVry University and a fiction writer and editor.

What to expect:
· Instruction and writing exercises that build on finding the meaning in our stories.
· Thoughts on how to take a memory and turn it into a story.
· Tips and techniques for bringing readers into the story.
· Ways to trim the fat and get to the meat of the story.
· Critique of a work in-progress.
· Reading our work aloud in a circle of supportive writers.
