Free Writing Workshop, May 19, 12:30 to 2:00 pm
You are invited to join a free afternoon workshop at the Library on Saturday, May 19, 2018. “Writing About Place: A Journey into Travel Writing” will be taught by award-winning author, Midge Raymond.
This workshop — for readers, writers, and travelers alike — takes a journey into reading and writing about place. You’ll hear excerpts from the works of published writers and travelers, and you’ll also have a chance to do some writing of your own as you learn essential tips for how to turn your own adventures into compelling stories. We’ll wrap up with a segment about options for publishing your travel writing as books, articles, fiction, or poetry.
Midge Raymond is the author of the novel “My Last Continent” and the award-winning short-story collection Forgetting English. Her writing has appeared in TriQuarterly, American Literary Review, Bellevue Literary Review, the Los Angeles Times magazine, the Chicago Tribune, Poets & Writers, and other publications. Midge worked in publishing in New York before moving to Boston, where she taught communication writing at Boston University for six years. She has taught creative writing at Boston’s Grub Street Writers, Seattle’s Richard Hugo House, and San Diego Writers, Ink. She has also published two books for writers, Everyday Writing and Everyday Book Marketing and is co-founder of the boutique publisher Ashland Creek Press.
Participants are encouraged to bring a pen, notebook, or laptop. For information, call the Library at 503-368-6665.

In the 1990’s Nancy started a citywide book club called “If All Seattle Read The Same Book.” Nancy Pearl is a regular NPR contributor, and is known for her keen sense of humor.
She has also written several books, but is most known for Book Lust, a compilation of her favorite reads. The book is divided by categories such as Fathers and Daughters, First Novels, Shrinks and Shrinkees, Hanky Reads, Chick Lit, and Aging.
