Writing Workshop: From Idea to Story

June 4, 2020, 6:30 – 8:30 pm ** please note time change

Kingston & Frontenac Public Library, Isabel Turner Branch
935 Gardiners Rd, Kingston ON K7M 9A9


Building a compelling, full-length novel from the spark of an idea can be daunting to any fiction writer. Join me for an in-depth look at how the four Cs —characters, conflict, complications, and change — can turn an idea into a page-turner. Whether you’re just getting started, or trying to push your in-progress manuscript to the finish line, you’ll take away helpful techniques from this interactive workshop.

Free to KFPL Library Card Holders, age 18 and older, but registration is required. Reserve your seat

In partnership with Limestone Genre Expo.

Workshop: Self-editing

You’ve written the last word of your manuscript, but you’re a long way from finished! I’m putting on my editor’s hat for this workshop to walk through a checklist of key areas that need focus, as you work from first to final draft.

Blue Pencil Session

The perfect opportunity for authors to get one-on-one advice on the first 5 pages of their manuscript! NY Bestselling author Kelley Armstong and I will be meeting with authors during 2 hour blue pencil sessions at this year’s Limestone Genre Expo. Authors can sign up for the session at the Expo registration desk, starting June 5th.
