Upcoming Workshops

MagazinesTaking it Personal: An Essay Writing Workshop
September 27, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Personal essays are one of the easiest ways to a reader’s heart. They’re also one of the easiest ways to break into the freelance business. What makes a great personal essay? What makes an essay compelling to a magazine editor? Through lecture, examples, and exercises, participants will learn what it takes to write a thought-provoking, relatable, and marketable personal essay that will grab an editor’s attention and a reader’s heart. REGISTER. Also see: Talk to Me: A Voice & Dialogue Workshop on October 11.

Hot off the Press

There Be DemonsAfter her father remarries, Britt Kelly’s life becomes a cesspit. She lives in her sister’s two-bedroom tenement apartment with her mother, two brothers, and two young nephews. She starts a new high school where she knows no one. And, even when Britt thinks she’s making friends, the church where she studies in is torn down. There Be Demons is a continuation of M. K. Theodoratus’ urban fantasy, Night for the Gargoyles that tells the tale of Gillen and his team of Gargoyle Guardians as they defend Trebridge while teaching Britt and her friends – the untrained “reinforcements." Along the way, Gillen and Britt learn things about each other to make them stronger both together and alone. See more member books in our library.
