Kingston - Teen Fiction Workshop
Tuesday, April 15, 2014
Kingston Public Library
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Celia Bland will lead teens, grade 7 and up, in a free writing workshop. Do you have an idea for a young adult novel or are you just curious about the genre? Participants will use excerpts from Marilynne Robinson’s novel, Housekeeping, as a springboard into their own writing around character, landscape, and plot. Please come to the workshop with a notebook and a pen or pencil.Celia Bland is the author of fourteen young adult and children's books, and Soft Box, a collection of poetry. Her poetry, fiction and essays have recently appeared in Witness, The Narrative Review (where her poem "Wasps" was named one of the year’s best), Drunken Boat, and Green Mountains Review and The Cortland Review. Madonna Comix, her collaboration with visual artist Dianne Kornberg, will be published in 2014. She is the International Coordinator for Bard College’s Institute for Writing and Thinking.
