Hood River Library and bookstore provide free writing workshop

Hood River County Library District and Waucoma Bookstore are teaming up to provide a free writing workshop, Character and the 7 Deadly Sins, taught by author Rosanne Parry on Thursday, Nov. 7, at 6.30 p.m. at the Hood River Library.

Every story needs conflict and the strongest conflicts come from characters who have habits and attitudes that tend to get them into trouble. The Seven Deadly Sins will help writers of all types of fiction develop character conflicts that are deep, interesting, and believable. Writers will take from this workshop a plan for how to increase their character’s inner tension, escalate the conflicts in their plot and add drama to the climax of their story.

Rosanne Parry is the author of the award winning novels “Heart of a Shepherd,” “Second Fiddle” and “Written in Stone.” She has taught writing at schools, conferences, educational non-profits, and online at the Loft Literary Center. She lives with her family in an old farmhouse in Portland and writes in a tree house in her back yard.

This program is free and sponsored by the Hood River County Library District and Waucoma Bookstore. For more information, contact Hood River Library District at 541-386-2535, info@ or http://hood
