I'll be leading two writing workshops at the Pickering Public Library this month, one tomorrow at Petticoat Creek and another on Saturday, July 21 at the Central Library.
Writing? In the SUMMER? I hear you say. Well, yes. Writing in the summer. But if that combination scares your kids, fear not! My writing workshops are fun, fun and FUN (with emphasis on the fun). We'll play games, we'll act silly, we'll get creative and I'll even have a bunch of giveaways, including signed copies of BE A WRITING SUPERSTAR. I guarantee your kids will have a great time. They'll even learn something without knowing it.
From the PPL website:
Write On! with the Barbarian Librarian (9 to 12 years)
Join Joel A. Sutherland, author of Be A Writing Superstar and a contestant on TV's WIPEOUT CANADA (as the Barbarian Librarian) for this high-energy creative writing workshop. The focus will be on fun and games that will engage children of every skill level, and Joel will share publishing advice with young writers looking for an inside edge. Write on!
Registration is required and starts Friday, June 22nd at 9:30 a.m. in person or by phone 905-831-6265.
Petticoat Creek, Saturday, July 7, 2012 - 10:30am to 11:30am
Central Library, Saturday, July 21, 2012 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
I hope to see you there!
