Elizabeth Cooke will offer a writing workshop at the Wilton Free Public Library, titled “Writing Our Stories,” with a focus on writing “the scene.” Participants will practice writing dialogue, using sensory details and narrative lines, along with exercises in point of view and time shifts. New and experienced writers are welcome!
The workshop will be held Saturday, November 15, from 10a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Wilton Free Public Library. The workshop is limited to 8 participants. To pre-register or request more information, call Lynne at 645-4831.
Elizabeth Cooke taught English and writing for 36 years; she learned to become a writer by teaching her students, of all ages and types, to write. She has published two novels; Complicity and Zeena, and a work of non-fiction called Tong Ting Finds a Family, the story of her adoption of a two year old from China well after her first children were born. Now that she is retired she is undertaking a writing project, a memoir, about her years in the classroom and the moments from own life, and how each affected and shaped the other.]]>
We have plans to build a patio on the south side of the library to allow people to sit and drink their coffee by the stream. We are seeking grant money and local funds to complete this project.
