My Journey From Writer Wannabe to Published Author: A Workshop for Writers and ReadersTuesday March 5, 2019
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM
Have you always wanted to write a book? Have aspirations to be a published author? Looking for some writing tips and guidance?
Join us as Francine Garson shares her own personal experience in becoming a published author. She will discuss the inspiration and genesis of her novel, THINGS, as well as some basic writing tips on character development, point of view, showing vs. telling, dialogue, and research.
THINGS is a New Jersey shore-based novel that tells the story of Jenny Gilbert, a young and successful college advisor who is secretly a hoarder and a collector, albeit a very neat one. As a former military brat, she is on a mission to find and reacquire the relics of her childhood that she was forced to leave behind with each of her family's moves. Jenny has rented a second apartment to accomodate her obsession. But as she tries to hide a complicated web of secrets from the man she's falling in love with, she becomes enmeshed in a tangle of lies. When Hurricane Sandy is headed directly for both of her apartments at the shore, Jenny finds herself in a truly desperate situation.
