Writing with Writers presents Diana Stevan

Wednesday, May 3, 2017, 7 – 8:30pm (re-scheduled from Feb. 8 due to bad weather)

Have you always wanted to write a novel but have just never known how to begin? Or are you an avid reader who would like to learn more about what goes into those great books of fiction you love so much? Then this workshop is perfect for you! Come and spend an evening with local author Diana Stevan, accomplished writer and published novelist. A former teacher and clinical social worker, Diana has been an editor, has written travel and fitness articles for her city newspaper, was a freelance writer for the CBC, and is also a published poet. In this interactive presentation, she will guide you through some of the steps necessary to start developing a novel-length story, and give you tips on how to keep that enthusiasm alive right up to the words “The End.” You’ll leave with some completed exercises that will fire up your imagination and a list of further resources for aspiring novelists. For more info on Diana and her work, see her website

Doors open at 6:30 p.m, presentation begins at 7pm. Wine and refreshments will be available through the Friends of the Library.

All are welcome. Registration required.
