What’s Your Story? Red Hook Public Library offers month-long writing workshop for adults



(RED HOOK, NY) –Have you dabbled in fiction writing or thought about trying? Hone your abilities to write and read short fiction at Red Hook Public Library’s Fiction Workshop, which will meet at 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, June 9 through July 2.

Writer Jono Naito aims to create a challenging, but nonjudgmental, environment in which writers can improve their work.  Over the course of four weeks, the group will examine the elements of short fiction, conduct exercises, and write and revise their own prose.  By the end of the workshop, writers will each have written a full piece of short fiction that has undergone several revisions, as well as a critical reflection on the style of a current literary journal.

For adults 18+. Free and open to the public. Please call the library at 845-758-3241 to register.
