Katherine Grace Bond -- Jump Start Your Novel
Tuesday, September 8, 2015, 7pm <--dinner starts at 5 PM)
Angelo's Restaurant, 1830 130th Ave NE, Bellevue, 98005, 425.883.2777
Do you have a novel-in-progress that needs a good jolt of electricity? A manuscript sitting in a drawer that you’ll get back to “someday?” A novel in your mind that has not made its way to the page? In this workshop you will find connections between character and plot that will surprise you – and get your book moving.
Katherine Grace Bond is the author of THE SUMMER OF NO REGRETS (Sourcebooks, May, 2012), and of the bestselling THE LEGEND OF THE VALENTINE, a story of the Civil Rights Movement. She often finds herself in the woods escaping from giant cats and shadowy figures in cloaks. She is the creator of TEENWrite, a live action role-playing and writing community where participants come as their characters, and of the Teenage Novelistprogram at Bellevue College. She lives with her husband in a dimension populated by younger people, some of whom resemble her.
- Do not feel obligated to buy dinner at the restaurant. However, since the restaurant is giving us the space for free, it would be nice of us to have dinner there when feasible (no pressure though; we know some folks don't have the time or have budgets to stick to).
- The restaurant can accommodate gluten-free or other special dietary requests; just ask the server.
- If you can't make it at 5:00 for dinner, you can still order dinner if you get there later; just please be there to place your order by 6:40ish so that we don't interrupt our speaker.
We'd love to see you there! :)
