Event Date: Friday, April 15 at 7:00pm
Meg Files, Pima college Creative Writing professor and director of the Pima Writers' Workshop, has written a book that teaches writers of all levels how to convert personal experiences into stories, non-fiction or poetry worthy of publication. Filled with engaging exercises, the book guides writers in identifying story-worthy material and transforming their raw material into finished pieces, through conquering fears associated with personal exposure, determining a story's focus, shaping the material into a cohesive whole, and editing and revising as needed. Writers working in any form will find this book invaluable for supplying them with the inspiration and practical instruction they need to get their experiences and emotions into print.
Meg will be joined by Rachael Cupp, Estella Gonzalez, Francis P. Harris and Danyelle Khmara, local contributors to her book.
