ZOOM Writers Workshop, "Why WONDER Matters": 6-7:30pm
Is there a story
you'd like to write
you're in the process of writing
- you've written
and you don't know next steps...?
Join Frieda B. author Renata Bowers - virtually via Zoom - as she leads this month's workshop for teens, adults and seniors of all stages and genres of writing... a creative and encouraging space in which to explore different avenues for expanding your love of writing, and for exploring the why, for whom, and how you write. Renata shares a compelling topic at each writer's workshop, to get the ball rolling.

This Month’s Workshop Topic: Why WONDER Matters. One of the greatest gifts great writers give to their readers is an expansion of wonder… awe, beauty, even tragedy stretched out onto a horizon. A good author invites and guides the reader through an engagement of the senses, to consider a viewpoint, a focal point, that without careful attention and time might otherwise have been missed.
Suggested Preparatory Homework: Get lost in WONDER, for at least one hour. Many more if possible. Afterwards, reflect and consider how it inspires, alters, defines, expands the piece you are writing or desire to write. We'll discuss this further on the 16th.
