Local author teaches book writing class

Agassiz Library hosting Wendy Dewar Hughes' one day workshop in finishing your manuscript

 

Many people have the dream of one day writing a book. You have a great idea for a story that no one has told before; you are an expert in your business or hobby and have information to share with your colleagues. Perhaps you’ve lived an interesting life and you want your story told so that your grandchildren will know their heritage.

“There is no question that writing a book is a big undertaking,” says Wendy Dewar Hughes, author of Picking up the Pieces. “I had the idea for my latest novel several years ago but once I started working on it, I found that there was so much to think about in the making of the book that I spent a lot of my time just figuring out how it’s done. I needed a system to speed up the process.”

Write That Book Now! Workshops were conceived out of the experience of learning how to create a book. According to Dewar Hughes, who also ghost writes for other authors, it involves much more than simply writing down your thoughts and expecting everyone to love what you’ve done. Write That Book Now! teaches would-be authors how to plan their projects, structure the book, target the perfect audience, research their subjects, write professionally and more.

Write That Book Now! Is presenting a One-Day Intensive Workshop in Agassiz on October 22 and in Chilliwack on October 29.
