I’m scheduled to give 2 writing workshops in Kelowna Saturday June 4. The lowdown is below. If you know people who may be interested, could you please share it with them? Thanks a lot.

Writing Workshops in Kelowna-Penticton-Vernon Area
With author, editor, and publishing consultant Elma (Martens) Schemenauer

Saturday June 4, 8:30 am-12 pm, Evangel Church, 3261 Gordon Drive, Kelowna, V1W 3N4. Are you a Christian who writes? Don’t miss these inspiring workshops! Pick up some new skills, polish your craft, and move on with completing your next novel.
                        
WORKSHOP 1: Nonfiction Writers Toolkit - What are the advantages of writing nonfiction, what writing opportunities are available, and how can we communicate faith in secular nonfiction?

WORKSHOP 2: Fictionalizing Real Life - Why and when might we decide to fictionalize real life experiences rather than write them as fact? This workshop will consider reasons and explore ways of transforming real life into fiction.

The workshops are hosted by the BC chapters of The Word Guild, a national ministry which supports writers and editors who are Christian.

Fee $20 plus HST and up including coffee break. Early bird rate available until May 13. Register today at: www.TheWordGuild.com/Kelowna  .  Special thanks to: The Light Magazine for their support.
