Have you ever wanted to try your hand at writing? Maybe you don’t have aspirations as a best selling novelist, but have always wanted to learn more about writing as a hobby?

Topics will include character and plot development as well as creating effective dialogue. Information about how to get works published will also be covered including publishing in electronic formats. Participants will share up to 15 pages of written materials to be critiqued by Mr. Inman prior to the workshop with suggestions for improvement.

During the workshop participants will be instructed in improving their work or in creating new work. There are two opportunities to participate.
