WESTPORT, Conn. -- For the kick-off of National Novel Writing Month, award-winning author Alison McGhee will explore the challenges creative writers face.
McGhee points out that writing, like most of the arts, is largely a solitary endeavor that includes challenges and rewards. The author of many picture books, books for children and adult novels will explore how writers take life experiences and emotions and translate them into works of art.
McGhee is a Pulitzer Prize nominee and a #1 New York Times best-selling author. She writes for all ages and in all forms, from poetry to novels and picture books to essays.
The workshop will be held at 2 p.m, Sunday in the Westport Library’s McManus Room.
The library will be offering support for writers throughout National Novel Writing Month, an international nonprofit initiative that encourages people of all ages to start a writing project.
