Central Wisconsin Book Festival "When the Going Gets Tough" Fiction Workshop With Kathie Giorgio

Central Wisconsin Book Festival
"When the Going Gets Tough" Fiction Workshop With Kathie Giorgio

Adults & Teens

The Central Wisconsin Book Festival isn't just for listening to authors! Join us for a virtual fiction workshop with Kathie Giorgio, director of the AllWriters' Workshop in Waukesha, WI.

When the going gets tough...writers take a coffee break. Or play solitaire. Or start the laundry. Or take a nap. Often, when an idea hits, it feels like our brains light up in fireworks. We run to the computer and we type and type and we have two pages, five pages, ten pages...and then we fizzle. That's where the real work starts. So how do we continue when the original excitement dies? Writing is often like a romantic relationship - we have to go from enamored to committed, til death do us part.

In this workshop, we'll talk about how to keep going past that initial burst of creativity and bring our projects to a successful finish. This workshop is for fiction writers, but poetry and nonfiction writers will get a lot out of it too!

In addition to directing the AllWriter's Workshop, Kathie is the acclaimed author of dozens of titles, including novels, story collections, poetry and essays. She'll read from her newest poetry collection during a second event on Sunday, Sept. 27.

Free and open to the public. Information on how to participate in the workshop coming soon! Call 715-261-7230 for more information.

Support for the 2020 Central Wisconsin Book Festival was provided through the Community Arts Grant Program of the Community Foundation of North Central Wisconsin, with funds provided by the Wisconsin Arts Board, a state agency; the Community Foundation; and the B.A. & Esther Greenheck Foundation.

Support also provided by the Murco Foundation Fund, the Marathon County Public Library Foundation, the Friends of the Marathon County Public Library and Wisconsin Public Radio.
