Are you and author or a writer on the Palouse? If you're a local writer on the Palouse who's looking for constructive feedback on pieces, graphic design help for book covers, query letter critiques, writing tips and much more, come join us! Pieces for critique will be emailed directly to our attendees. That email will also have list of questions to help direct the critique/discussion as well as some helpful tips to keep in mind while you critique. We'll review 2-3 pieces every week. The rules for the group can be found below! Please email [masked] to join!
The local Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators is beginning a monthly Kidlit For Grown-ups Book Club. Their first meeting is Thursday, March 21 at 7 PM in the chalkboard room at One World Cafe in Moscow. You needn't be a member of SCBWI to attend, but they'd like you to have read the book, which for March is this year's Newbery medal book, Merci Suarez Changes Gears by Meg Medina. They'll discuss the artistry and craft of the writing.

Where Do I Begin? Using Storytelling as an Entry Point for Writing Storytelling and the personal narrative are powerful tools in helping you understand yourself and others. In this generative workshop, you will be introduced to a handful of different "storytelling" methods which can serve as an entry point for writing your story. With a brief history of storytelling, the oral tradition, and its importance and impact on writing and education today, you will leave this workshop with the tools you need to tell, write, and share your story.
