My part in this will be a 20-30 minute talk on some of the technical aspects of fiction writing. (Not too technical or I wouldn't be able to figure it out...) All-- You are invited to Minwaajimo--Telling a Good Story, A Gathering of Creative Writers from 2-9 pm on Friday, June 23, 2017. The event is free and open to the public, hosted by Keweenaw Bay Ojibwa Community College with the support from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and the Copper Country Community Arts Center.
