This workshop, presented by author Laura Kepner, focuses on several key elements of writing, including subject, plot, character, story development, pacing, setting, dialogue, and point of view. If you are an aspiring writer of any level and enjoy great storytelling, join us to discover the best in your writing and improve upon it even more. Bring a notebook, a pencil, a friend, and an open imagination.  The Library is located at 101 2nd Street N. Safety Harbor, FL.  For more information and to register, call 727-724-1525 x 4118.
