Local writers take note: Gwinnett’s own Carole Townsend announced yesterday that she will bring her Writer’s Workshop to Grayson starting June 22. The five-week course will be held from 7–9PM at Grayson Coffee House.
The course will be comprehensive and aimed at helping writers on any level, and it won’t be boring old lectures. Not with Townsend at the helm.
“It’ll be creative writing, hands on, learning style musts, techniques, and plenty of tips,” Townsend wrote in an email. “Plus we’ll demystify some of the business of the business of writing.
Cost is $250 and includes complimentary copies of Townsend’s first three books.
Townsend, who rose to prominence with her humorous weekly column with the Gwinnett Daily Post, and most recently toured the Southeast for her book “Magnolias, Sweet Tea and Exhaust: One Woman’s Journey to Understand the Phenomenon of NASCAR”, has a fourth book due out in 2016. She now writes a weekly column for the Gwinnett Citizen, and is hard at work on her next book.
“I have been teaching this workshop at other locations for almost 2 yrs,” Townsend wrote, “and students love the practical and useable knowledge they take away from it. Reviews of past workshops and all the details will be included in the EVENT posting coming soon from Grayson Coffee House.”
Space is at a premium for the class, so anyone interested should go ahead and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to find out details. Townsend might also host a class for middle/high school students if parents show interest. Any student workshop would be held during daytime hours.
