Hank Quense, author and self-publishing expert, will lead a two part series on “Creating Stories” for anyone who would like to learn how to write or continue writing! This workshop will take place over two consecutive Mondays, March 9 and 16 from 6pm-8pm. “Creating Stories” is free and open to the public and will take place at The Cedar Grove Free Public Library, located at 1 Municipal Plaza in Cedar Grove (behind the post office).

This lecture series provides the attendees with a solid grounding in the design elements and storytelling techniques required by all stories including short stories, novels, memoirs and scripts. Hank will discuss the three components of putting a story together: ideas, story design and the storytelling.  Participants will learn to harness their creativity and fashion a story in a way that will hold their readers’ interest.
