What's the best way to imbue your creative writing with historical detail? When do you have to stick to the facts and how do you make the story feel true when you don't? Join Zetta Elliott, the author of over 25 books for young readers and Weeksville's 2015 Writer-in-Residence, as she leads an intimate writing workshop that will help jumpstart your creativity by using rich history to write compelling narratives. Participants will receive a copy of Ms. Elliott's book "A Wish After Midnight," which is set in historic Weeksville.

Note: This session will be limited to 20 people max, in order to allow for writing exercises and group critique.
