Workshop: Writing the Story Only You Can Write, led by Bren McClain
Award-winning novelist Bren McClain believes that, for each of us, there are stories that only we can write, and if we don't honor those stories by telling them, then who will? This empowering class is for anyone who is writing their story. Participants will learn to make readers care, to feel the story as deeply as its writer does. Without that, nothing else matters. But how to do that? McClain will talk about techniques, discuss some published examples, and will look at work that participants are invited to bring to the class. (You are invited to bring up to five pages, but the amount you share (reading aloud) depends on the number of attendees.) Open to all genres and levels of experience. Let's roll up our sleeves and get busy.

Advance registration required. Workshop registration fees are non-refundable, but if you must cancel, the fee can be applied toward a future Conroy Center class or event.
