Calling Aspiring Young Adult Writers
The Pickford Library’s popular young writers group led by the dynamic sister duo of Janet Beasley and Dar Bagby will be returning on October 10, and will continue through April 2014. Last year the group published an impressive e-book on smashwords.com, the 2012-2013 Pickford Young Writers Workshop Anthology, Short Stories and Poetry.
This year there will be two separate courses: one for “newbies” and one for “returning authors.”
Any young adult interested in learning the “inside scoop” of writing and being published is welcome to attend. Janet and Dar will share what they have learned about breaking into the literary world, and they look forward to helping young writers who have a work in progress or would like to get started on a book of their own but don't know where to begin.
Janet, who lives in Florida, and Dar, who lives in Brimley, have been working together via email, phone, computer file-sharing services, and Skype for a couple of years. At the Thursday evening library workshops, Janet appears on Skype so she can interact with the young writers in real time. Because of her association with authors around the world, Janet has a wealth of information at her fingertips and loves sharing it with prospective young writers.
Dar, an English language specialist, works with teens regarding proofreading and self-editing. She also shares her experiences in the field of illustrating.
Janet and Dar will present these workshops at the Pickford Community Library every other Thursday (working around holidays, of course). The October sessions are on the 10th and the 24th. Their sessions, not only informative but also enjoyable, will enlighten teens regarding the world of writing. And they don't give homework assignments; each young writer works at his/her own pace. So please come and see what these two ladies have to offer. They hope one day to be able to say, “That author attended our Young Writers Workshops at Pickford Community Library.” That author could be YOU!
For more information on the young adult writers programs, please contact Pickford Community Library Manager Ann Marie Smith at 906-647-1288 or email email@example.com.
