Workshop planned

WILTON — Elizabeth Cooke will offer a writing workshop from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 15, at the Wilton Free Public Library. “Writing Our Stories,” with a focus on writing “the scene,” is the topic, according to a press release from the Library.

Participants will practice writing dialogue, using sensory details and narrative lines, along with exercises in point of view and time shifts. New and experienced writers are welcome.

Cooke taught English and writing for 36 years. She has published two novels; “Complicity and Zeena,” and a work of non-fiction, “Tong Ting Finds a Family,” the story of her adoption of a two year old from China well after her first children were born. Since retirement she is undertaking a writing project, a memoir, about her years in the classroom and the moments from own life, and how each affected and shaped the other.

The workshop is limited to eight participants. To pre-register or request more information, call 645-4831.
