Travel Inspired Writing with local author Amanda Zieba

Travel Inspired Writing, June 22 6-8pm with Amanda Zieba, local author


"You know that invigorating feeling you have as you travel? The magic that comes with exploring some place new or returning to a safe haven? I want to help you use that power to fuel incredible storytelling."  --Amanda Zieba


Join author Amanda Zieba for a two hour workshop as she helps you take your travel experiences and turn them into power on the page in the form of creating dynamic settings and luscious descriptions. While Amanda's strengths lie is fictional writing, both fiction and nonfiction writers of all ability levels are welcome to join us for an evening of inspired travel writing. Participants should bring a couple of pictures, a journal, a trinket, brochure or any other items that might bring back strong memories of the place they plan to write about. 


As a side note, Amanda did this exact thing when she wrote Champion Chocolatier. She used all of my summer trips to Duluth to write a realistic account of a woman's life in that town.  Amanda will have this book and her other books for sale after the workshop!
