Monroe Arts Alliance Sponsors Free Creative Writing Workshops
The   Monroe   Arts   Alliance   is   sponsoring   free   creative   writing   workshops   in   Alderson   on   Nov.   12   at   the Alderson Presbyterian Church and Nov. 15 at the Monroe County Public Library in Union. The   Alderson   workshop   runs   10   a.m.   to   noon.   The   workshop   in   Union   is   scheduled   from   10:30   a.m.   to 12:30 p.m. The public is invited to both workshops. “There   are   so   many   stories   worth   sharing,”   said   workshop   leader   Belinda Anderson.      She   will   show   how   to turn   experience   and   imagination   into   the   written   word.   Those   new   to   the   writing   experience   will   learn   how to   develop   ideas   into   short   narratives,   and   those   already   writing   will   discover   techniques   for   honing   their skills.   Participants   will   leave   with   material   for   their   own   projects   and   possible   entries   for   an   upcoming volume of the Monroe County Tales, sponsored by the alliance. Volumes   I   and   II   of   the   Monroe   County   Tales   are   small,   hand-crafted   books   featuring   stories   by   winners   of writing   contests   sponsored   by   the   alliance.   Many   of   the   stories   offer   glimpses   into   Monroe   County’s   rich heritage, while others give insight into the places, people, and events of the area. Anderson,   a   Monroe   County   native,   is   the   author   of   four   books   for   young   people   and   adults   who   draws   on her Appalachian heritage for inspiration. She makes presentations throughout the state. Bring a notebook and pen and enjoy a day of creativity.
