Wendy McLeod MacKnight: Look Beyond What You Think You See: Using art to jumpstart your storytelling
$40 non-members, $30 members
In this workshop, Wendy will lead participants through the creative writing process, from inspiration to publication, with a special focus on the works in the gallery that open up new worlds and create fabulous characters.
Wendy grew up in a small town and wrote her first novel at age nine. She worked for the Government of New Brunswick for twenty-five years, ending her career as the Deputy Minister of Education when the siren call of writing became impossible to ignore. Her debut middle grade novel, It’s a Mystery, Pig Face! was published by Sky Pony Press in 2017. Her second book, The Frame-Up, a fantasy set at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, was published June 5th 2018 by Greenwillow Books/Harper Collins. Her next novel is coming in early 2020.
