It’s the spring of the aspiring writer as Tempe Public Library kicks off its Writer in Residence program, which runs through the end of April. Scottsdale resident and author, Stephanie Elliot, known for her Sad Perfect novels, will host several workshops to give writers first-hand tips to improve their skills. The workshops will cover a variety of writing topics, from dialogue advice to peer critiques to writing query letters. Visit the Writers in Residence webpage to see a full schedule.
Elliot will also be available for 30-minute one-on-one consultations by appointment. Register for a one-on-one session here.
Workshops are on Wednesday nights from 6-7:30 p.m. from Feb. 19 through April 15. All workshops and one-on-one sessions will take place at the Tempe Public Library, 3500 S. Rural Road.
The purpose of the Writer in Residence program is to encourage writers to continue their craft by providing valuable insight and hands-on training from successful authors. The program is supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
