Writing Workshop with Diane Mulligan

Date: October 16, 2021 at 2:30 - 3:30 pm

In the words of novelist Rebecca Makkai, "You are not owed a reader. You earn every reader over and over." Whether you write short stories, novels, or narrative nonfiction, this workshop will help you unlock three elements of storytelling that keep readers coming back for more. Through a series of exercises, we will practice using the sorts of questions readers pose to strengthen our plot and consider the organization of story elements for maximum reader engagement. This workshop is suitable for all writers, from those just beginning to write stories to those with complete manuscripts.

Diane V. Mulligan is the author of three novels, most recently What She Inherits, which was named an Honorable Mention in the Writer's Digest 25th Annual Self-Published Book Awards. Her second novel, The Latecomers Fan Club, was an IndieReader Discovery Award Winner for Chick Lit. Diane teaches English at St. John's High School in Shrewsbury, MA.

This program is being held in person at the Main Library and virtually through Zoom.
