Tunxis Library invites the community to “Dreamweaving: The Craft and Art of Planning and Writing Your Novel,” a seminar and workshop presented by author and editor Adele Annesi on May 2, 6:30-8:30 p.m. in Tunxis Library Room 7-206. Free admission, and refreshments will be served.

Seating is limited, so registration is required.  Email a.annesi@sbcglobal.net to reserve your spot.

The workshop is designed to help emerging and established writers plan and write their first or next novel. The seminar includes instruction on the dreamstorming technique pioneered by Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Olen Butler, author of “From  Where You Dream.” Includes an in-session writing exercise, handouts and a framework for planning and completing that first or subsequent novel. For best results, bring your current writing project and ideas.
