This workshop will allow you to peer into the life of working ghostwriter. You may have heard about ghostwriters recently in the media and politics. But what do they do? How do they do it? You will be given the opportunity to learn how a ghostwriter thinks, writes and creates books, speeches and articles for others from a real live ghostwriter. In the writing world, they are rare creatures, so this is a chance to meet one up close. This is a hands on workshop, so bring pen and paper as you attempt to write a short ghostwritten piece with other participants. No formal writing training is needed, just a desire to learn a new way of writing, be creative and have fun in the process. This presentation will be limited to 20 participants, so sign up early.
Please contact Ryan Collins at 563-324-1410 for more information or to register over the phone.
