Veterans Writing Workshop: Polish the Details

  • Kansas City public Library - Plaza Branch 4801 Main Street Kansas City, MO, 64112 United States (map)

Writers will learn the tools of the trade in the all-important job of shaping their writing for final publication or personal use. We will look at how word usage and punctuation affect meaning and tone. In conclusion, we will explore how all three sessions combine to support your writing skill set. Writers can also receive advice/critiques from the session leaders of writing they have produced in the sessions or have been working on at home.

Lunch will be provided.
