Author Jess Lourey to give writing workshop at the Brainerd Public Library
Thursday, March 01, 2012:
"If you wish to be a writer, write." But how? You've got the great idea, the one that won't let you go, that embellishes itself as you walk around your day. How do you turn that good idea into a great novel, and what do you do with it after you write it? Join author and college professor Jess Lourey at the Brainerd Public Library from 10am-12pm on Saturday, March 10th for the answers. Participants will be shown how to go from idea to completed novel in seven steps and receive detailed information on cracking the world of publishing. This seminar has been taught by Jess in New York City, New Orleans, Bethesda, and San Francisco, and now it's coming to your neck of the woods! The workshop is free and open to the public. Call the library at 218-829-5574 to register for the workshop. Bring a writing utensil and a notebook.
