Upcoming Events (Fall 2022)
Words on the Page: A Monthly Writing Workshop
Old Town Books (In Person)
Join Kristen Zory King and Old Town Books for four fast-paced monthly writing workshops to get words on the page! Throughout each session we will examine contemporary pieces around a theme and then generate our own work based on prompts and guided discussion. You do not need to be an experienced writer or poet to participate—beginners, journal-ers, and award winning writers all welcome. This workshop is free for all with a suggested $20 donation to Book Love, Old Town Books’ charitable giving program that delivers new books to area kids in need.
