Special Workshop Offered at MWC 4/13: “The Self-Made Writer” led by Davenport Native Deb Vanasse

MWC is happy to announce this special workshop opportunity on Monday, April 13th, 6:30 p.m., at MWC. Davenport native Deb Vanasse, author of sixteen books, will lead this unique workshop, which we are able to offer to the public at no cost. Here’s a full description:

“As writers, we enjoy the freedom to innovate, in our work and also in the ways we learn and grow. How do we make the most of that freedom? Author of sixteen books, Deb Vanasse has been named by Library Journal as “one of Alaska’s leading storytellers.” A graduate of Davenport West High School, Deb will present a lively program that features creative ways for writers to think about craft, a writer’s education, and the topsy-turvy world of publishing.”

This workshop will last approx. 90 minutes, and it will be free and open to the public. RSVPs to mwc@midwestwritingcenter.org are welcome, but not required. Please contact MWC if you have any questions about the event.
