Writing Memoirs and Personal Stories Workshops at La Crescent Public Library

How To Publish Your Stories and Poemsbook-with-stars

 Many authors dream of becoming a published author with a big publishing company and seeing their book in stores across the country. But there are a lot of steps between getting a story or poem idea and seeing your book in print. Award-Winning Author and Storyteller Kevin Strauss (www.naturestory.com), has published six books with big publishers, small publishers, and as a self-publisher. Learn the advantages and disadvantages of each approach and how to chart your own course in the world of publishing.

Each class in this series stands alone and includes two hours of lecture, writing exercises, and small group discussions. Following each 2-hour workshop, participants can take part in a 30- minute “Writer’s Roundtable” where they can bring 1-2 pages of written work to read and get feedback from the group.

All participants can get written feedback on their writing via email with Kevin Strauss. On the day of the last session, volunteers can read their work as part of the “Writer’s Read Concert”.

 All Workshops Take Place 10am – 2pm at the La Crescent Public Library.  Pre-registration is required.
