Roeliff Jansen Community Library hosts fiction writing workshop November 12

On Saturday, November 12, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Roeliff Jansen Community Library will host “The ABCs of Writing Page-Turning Fiction.” The writers’ workshop will be taught by author, teacher and scholar Joanne Dobson.

This workshop is designed for writers of all levels — from more experienced writers who wish to refresh and deepen their skills, to new writers who want to learn the basics. Brief lectures will cover fundamentals of creating compelling fiction: character, plot, voice, setting, narrative momentum and point of view. Lectures will be interspersed with short, intensive writing exercises permitting participants to explore the topic being addressed.

The fee is $25 and can be waived upon request. To register or to request fee waiver contact Bobbie Slonevsky at Snow date for the workshop is November 19. For more information, contact Regina Colangelo (914) 954-3494.
