The Bowie Public Library welcomes Texas Writes, a statewide program founded and administered by the Writers’ League of Texas that brings accomplished authors to rural libraries for a half day of workshops and panel discussions on July 25.
This free event is open to the public. It will feature novelists Polly Holyoke, who writes for both adults and children, and Ann Fields, widely recognized for her romance and paranormal books.
The July 25 Texas Writes program will be from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Bowie Public Library, 301 Walnut Street, Bowie.
Advance registration is encouraged and can be made through the library at 940-872-2681. Refreshments will be provided.
Holyoke, an award-nominee for her children’s novel, “The Neptune Project,” notes, “Whether you long to write fantasy, science fiction, time travel or historical novels, you have to get the simplest details right from the characters’ names to the food they eat.”
During Texas Writes, she will talk about “World Building 101: How to Create Vivid New Realities.”
Fields will discuss “Editing Made Less Hard.” She explains, “To write is to edit and yet editing seems to be the more ignored of the two. Probably because editing is, well, hard and not nearly as fun as writing. However, since editing is a necessary evil, writers should invest as much knowledge in it as in writing.”
