The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS - Emily Holling­shead

You may have no­ticed that we’re pretty en­thu­si­as­tic about sup­port­ing lo­cal writ­ers -- espe­cially in the fall, when we get worked up about NaNoWriMo ([In­ter]Na­tional Novel Writ­ing Month)! We’ve been build­ing up our col­lec­tion of great writ­ing books, which dis­ap­pear off the shelves faster than we can stock them, and this fall Writ­ers of Di­nosaur Val­ley will be bet­ter than ever, with a new time slot and a new writ­ing tool to try each ses­sion. You’ll find us gath­ered the 2nd Satur­day of each month, 10 am-12 pm.

We’re also work­ing on of­fer­ing more op­por­tu­ni­ties for you to learn from other au­thors. Next Satur­day, Septem­ber 24, au­thor Ron­nie Roberts will be pre­sent­ing two free work­shops, and we’d love to see you there. Join us in the morn­ing, from 10 am-12 pm, for a ses­sion on what it looks like to pub­lish in the 21st cen­tury. In the af­ter­noon, from 2-4 pm, you’ll learn 9 great ways to take the mid­dle of your story from mushy to mar­vel­lous. There will even be op­por­tu­ni­ties to win a few copies of the au­thor’s books. So pack up your note­books, net­books, pen­cils and pens, and come write at the li­brary.

For more in­for­ma­tion on pro­grams, events and ser­vices at the li­brary, visit our web­site at www.drumheller­li­brary.ca, or call us at 403823-1371. We’re also on Face­book, Twit­ter, and Pin­ter­est!
