    Contact: Floor 2 Ask Here Desk   503-588-6315   library@cityofsalem.net
   

Author, writing coach, and editor Jen Violi returns to Salem Public Library to kick off National Novel Writing Month with a writing workshop for adults. Space is limited and registration is required. To register, click the Register button below or call the Floor 2 Ask Here Desk at 503-588-6315.
 
You write.  So who cares? Agents, editors, publicists, literary critics, booksellers?
 
Well now. That’s a good way to let all of the air out of your balloon.
 
Once upon a time, the only person who needed to care was you. You wrote words and sentences and stories from a deep well of joy. You wrote because it was fun. Because who knows what would you’d say when you did? Because it was a release. Because you wanted to.
 
It’s easy to obsess about finished products, outcomes, or sales and to forget why we even started writing. All of which leads to not writing.
 
Consider this workshop a crucial and rejuvenating reminder—a time to engage in and share playful writing, to hit your reset button, and to recover your joy in the process of putting words on papers.
 
A note: no computers, please; this is about you, your pen, your notebook, and your voice.

Support for this free program has been provided by the Salem Public Library Foundation.

Jen Violi is the author of Putting Makeup on Dead People, a BCCB Blue Ribbon Book, and finalist for the Oregon Book Awards. As a mentor, editor, and facilitator, Jen helps writers unleash the stories they’re meant to tell, from blogs to websites to award-winning books.

No one else can write the words you can write. No one else can tell the story you can tell. Your voice is a unique and irreplaceable gift to the world. In order to write anything—from fiction to creative non-fiction—with power and purpose, you need to know the sound of your own voice. What excites, delights, inspires, challenges, and frustrates you all contributes to that.
 
In this workshop, you’ll write and share writing. You’ll listen deeply to yourselves and each other. You’ll practice expressing what matters to you. You’ll experiment with ways of doing that. The best way to learn the sound of our own voices is to use them, and during our time together, we’ll do just that.
 
A note: no computers, please; this is about you, your pen, your notebook, and your voice.
