Got the writing bug? Have you been struggling to get your thoughts on paper, but find yourself stuck or losing motivation?
Writing is not an easy task, but there are tips that many writers use to help the words flow more smoothly.
On Thursday, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., B.C. writer Eleanor Witton Hancock will present a workshop called Let’s Loosen Up and Write in the Multipurpose Room of the Courtenay Library.
Hancock lives in Kamloops, but grew up in Zeballos. After extensive research, she published Salt Chuck Stories from Vancouver Island’s West Coast — Zeballos, Nootka Sound, Kyuquot.
She is currently writing short fiction and another popular history, Hardly the Klondike, the 1938 Zeballos Gold Boom.
She has presented writing workshops in several BC libraries, and takes a relaxed approach. Participants will engage in short, no-stress exercises to help them bring their writing alive.
Register for this free workshop by calling 250-334-3369 or drop into the branch at 300 Sixth St.
