Moncton writers to unlock their trade secrets at January workshop

Have you always wanted to write, but don’t know how to start? Maybe you’ve been writing secretly for ages, but don’t know where to go from here?

You're in luck.

Join the MonctonWriters.ca group of professional freelance writers for an informative half-day workshop that will show you the possibilities and realities of the professional writing world.

"The Write Stuff: Writing for Profit" will be held Saturday, January 26, 2008 at the Moncton Public Library, Northrop Frye Room, from 1-5 p.m.

Workshop presenters will share stories of how they carved careers doing what they love best: putting words to paper. Participants will learn about the writing life, how writers write and where they can be published. The format will be casual, with lots of time provided for questions. Topics include writing from home; finding markets and protecting your rights. The writers who will be passing on the tools and tips of their trade are members of the Professional Writers Association of Canada, Southeast NB Chapter.

This workshop makes a unique Christmas gift for the budding writer on your list. Pre-register and the group will send you a confirmation gift card that you can put under the tree.

For complete details on the workshop and the presenters, visit the group’s website at http://www.monctonwriters.ca/; email info@monctonwriters.ca; or call Allison Finnamore at 860-7761.

Deborah, what an active and progressive writing group you belong to 'out there'. This workshop should be well attended -- it addresses all the key questions neophytes want to know the answers to. What a good idea for people to give the workshop as a Christmas gift!

Speaking of unlocking trade secrets (oops, just me again!!) ... I am so excited. I've learned that the regional library system in my neck of the woods has selected me as their 2008 writer-in-residence.
