Sharing Stories: Writer's Workshop

Do you need inspiration to write a story for the SMCGS's Sharing Stories? Come join us for a Writer's Workshop with Elliot Margolies of the MidPen Media Center.

Elliot is the Director of the MadeIntoAmerica.org online archive of US immigration stories. He does a wonderful workshop that will get your ideas flowing and help you to find the hooks and best story ideas that will draw in your readers.



When: February 9, 2:30-4 pm
Where: SMCGS Library at Canada College



Can't make the workshop? Visit the MadeIntoAmerica.org website and read some of the stories you'll find there for inspiration.

Be sure to add the SMCGS May potluck meeting to your calendar. All those that submitted a story and are in attendance will receive a small gift. Names will be drawn for cash prizes, and many story contributors will be asked to share their stories with the audience.


When: May 20, 10:30-1:00
Watch the website, facebook page and blog for further details
