“Writing helps me make sense of the world…I see writing as a way to figure out how I feel about things.”
Join award-winning author Suzanne Roberts at Bona Fide Books for a one-night travel writing workshop on October 11th. The basics of writing travel and adventure essays, including crafting your work for an audience, basic revision strategies, and publishing opportunities are discussed.
The workshop takes place at Bona Fide Books in Meyers on Ocotber 11 from 6pm to 9pm, and is only $40.
A lover of travel and the study of women’s connection with nature, Suzanne’s poems, stories and essays delve into her personal life experiences and observations. She says her poems are more like narratives since she loves to tell stories as illustrated in her poetry collections.
Suzanne is the author of Almost Somewhere: Twenty-Eight Days on the John Muir Trail (University of Nebraska Press, 2012), as well as four collections of poetry, including Three Hours to Burn a Body: Poems on Travel (2011). Named “The Next Great Travel Writer” by National Geographic’s Traveler, Suzanne holds a doctorate in Literature and the Environment and teaches English at Lake Tahoe Community College and for the low residency MFA program in Creative Writing at Sierra Nevada College.
The workshop will take place at:
Bona Fide Books
1069 Magua Street, #4 in Meyers
