How to Build Your Story workshop, Saturday, Jan 19, in Oakville

The Neighbors, by guest speaker
Hannah Mary McKinnon

The Oakville Public Library presents…
How to Build Your Story
Plotting novels & Writing short stories
Saturday, January 19, 2019
10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Oakville Central Library, Auditorium, 120 Navy Street Oakville, Ontario (Map here
)

This workshop will show you how writers plot a novel and will give you the best tips on writing short stories. We’ll also look at where to get your stories published and how to win contests. Best yet, you’ll see how to apply the story-building techniques you’ve learned to your own writing.

Guest speaker Hannah Mary McKinnon is the author of The Neighbors, a dark, suspenseful  woman’s fiction novel published in March 2018 by MIRA (HarperCollins USA) and Time After Time, published in June 2016 by AVON (HarperCollins UK), a novel about love, loss and second chances that’s full of humour. Hannah’s third book, Her Secret Son (MIRA Books), launches next spring, and her fourth book, The Other Sister (MIRA Books), will come out in 2020.
Hannah
When she’s not writing novels for adults, Hannah’s three boys give her plenty of material for children’s books. 
At the workshop, Hannah will be speaking about the different trial and error approaches she’s used to plot her novels and short stories. She’ll also be sharing her story of her writing career so far.
