Writer's Workshop: The Bumpy Road to Getting Published

The Buena Park Library is presenting a writer's workshop by local author and writing teacher, Maralys Wills. In this workshop called "The Bumpy Road to Getting Published" Wills will offer real-world suggestions for writing novels or non-fiction and turning them into salable works. This workshop is designed for readers who aspire to be published writers. She will suggest concrete writing tips, such as saving your strongest word for the end of the sentence and upgrading dialogue so even dull characters sound interesting. Maralys Wills, a college creative writing teacher for more than 20 years and author of 12 books shares the dos and don'ts of getting published.

The workshop will be on Thursday, October 29, 2009 at 6:30 pm. It will be held in the Downstairs Community Room of the Library.

Marayls Wills, an award-winning author, brings her varied and exciting lifestyle to the podium. An author of twelve books in a variety of genres, she was never content to contemplate life in the abstract: she was too buy living it. Even as her six children (five boys and a girl), were growing up, Wills began teacher novel-writing to adults, bestowing on them her energy, her enthusiasm and her passion for good writing.

Her most recent book is Damn the Rejections Full Speed Ahead and copies of this will be available for sale and signing at the workshop
