The Concord Free Public Library invites teens ages 14 – 18 to attend a special writing workshop at the Concord Free Public Library (129 Main Street) on Tuesday, November 5 from 4:00 to 5:30 PM.

Get to the heart of your story! Join author and experienced creative writing teacher, Lara Wilson, to discover new ways to engage with your writing project. We’ll explore craft topics such as authentic language, details with impact, meaningful dialogue and compelling characters. What makes your story unique? Can readers inhabit your scenes through their senses? How do you unfold conflict to keep them reading? Your questions and interests drive the conversation. Find your way to follow Emily Dickinson’s suggestion to “Tell all the truth, but tell it slant.” Be inspired and write on! Registration is required.

Lara JK Wilson’s prize-winning short fiction has been published in The Kenyon Review, StoryQuarterly, American Fiction, Printers Row, and the Chicago Tribune Book Section, among others. She was awarded a 2010 Massachusetts Cultural Council Fiction Fellowship and fiction scholarships from the Bread Loaf and Sewanee Writers’ Conferences, as well as recognition from the Nelson Algren Awards and the Mark Twain Award for Fiction. Lara taught fiction workshops for a decade and served on the board of directors of Grub Street in Boston for six years. Currently, she is a board member of the Friends of the Concord Free Public Library, where she curates the Authors Series, Mindfulness Programming, and the Concord Festival of Authors.

Free. Please email odurant@minlib.net to register, or call (978) 318-3379. You may also register on the Library’s calendar of events at https://concordlibrary.org/news-events/events-calendar/
