Narrative Train Workshop with Sandra Phinney
April 8 @ 9:30 am - April 9 @ 4:30 pm
IF you have a true story to write, such as a magazine story, essay, memoir or book—and you wonder how to give it a pulse so it reads like a fine piece of fiction—then this two-day workshop is for you. Sandra Phinney will lead this workshop at the Saint John Free Public Library, 1 Market Square from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm, Saturday and Sunday.
The Writers Federation of New Brunswick is pleased to sponsor this workshop. Martha Vowles—the Federation’s regional rep for Saint John—says, “I have participated in three of Sandra’s workshops on Creative Non-fiction, Memoir-Writing, and Narrative-Writing. Each time I have come away with practical strategies for getting my thoughts onto the page in a lively and readable way. She has a warm, engaging way of teaching, making her workshops enjoyable as well as informative.”
Phinney is an award-winning writer who has penned three non-fiction books. She is currently working on both a travel memoir and a book about Maud Lewis. Her articles have been published in magazines and newspapers including Saltscapes, Atlantic Business Magazine, AAA Living, LocalXpress, and the Nature Conservancy of Canada.
