Eighty percent of people want to write a book but most of those who dream of writing a novel aren’t sure how to begin. In this workshop we’ll contemplate elements of fiction before starting a novel: compelling characters, point-of-view, narrative distance, setting, plot structure, creating scenes and chapters, and whether or not to outline.

Kathleen earned a B.S. degree in Environmental Education from West Virginia University and a M.A. degree in History Education and Writing from Antioch University, Ohio. She spent over a decade working as an educator and curator for the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, and another decade scripting and producing instructional television series for the Wisconsin Educational Communications Board/Wisconsin Public Television. These experiences helped provide the foundation for her current full-time job as a self-employed writer.
“I’ve worn many bonnets over the years: writer, reader, historical interpreter, curator, reenactor, naturalist, educator. Never had a job I didn’t love! As a child, I dreamed of being a full-time writer. Now I have the fun of writing books about ideas that fascinate me, experiences that move me, and historical tidbits that capture my imagination.”
