Award-winning Saskatchewan author, Carol Rose GoldenEagle, has four titles on the market, with a fifth (and possibly sixth) to be released in 2020. Writing and storytelling have always been a part of her life - although finding a voice, for any writer, is a process that is not always as easy as it sounds.
Social norms suggest that, often, we should keep our opinions to ourselves -- that we shouldn't talk about difficult situations or that we should always be polite. Perhaps in real life, but in writing, there is no place for polite conversation.
Writers who attend this workshop will be encouraged to step out of a self-imposed comfort zone, to a place where the words were written do not just tell a story, they resonate.
Participation will be limited to 15 participants, so please register in advance. The deadline for registration is February 5, 2020.
