Join Susan Wallach from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday April 5, at Howland Public Library, as she uses the Amherst Writers and Artists method to provide a safe and encouraging atmosphere to write. Learn how to use prompts to spark your creative voice. Wallach will focus on what stays with the listener, what is memorable and what simply sounds beautiful.

Bring paper and pen, or your laptop to this highly interactive, adults-only, writing workshop. Space is limited and registration is required. Sign up will be at the library’s front desk. Wallach is a former editor at Random House and is accredited by Amherst Writers and Artists. She is also a published young adult author and has been a ghostwriter for Holt Henry Books for Young Readers and Temple University Press.
