This writers’ workshop is open to the public and will be held at Middlesex County College. The program mixes sessions on writing skills with practical tips on selling what you have written.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to spend the day with published writers and learn their secrets,” said Professor Melissa Edwards, who is coordinating the program. “We’ll have sessions on blogging, writing children’s books, memoirs, poetry, writing research papers, journalism, playwriting, how to teach creative writing, plus one on how to market your work. It promises to be an excellent program – and very valuable for writers and aspiring writers. This is the fourth writers’ workshop; the first three were very well received.”

Public school teachers may earn six Professional Development Credits at the workshop.

The program will run to 5 p.m. Attendees may take part in a “spoken word/essay” contest, in which they present their own work. The winner will receive $100.
