From Inspiration to Story to Page, a writing workshop with Chelsey Philpot, author of Be Good Be Real Be Crazy

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016, 2 p.m.

Chelsey Philpot (Even in Paradise) returns with her second YA novel, Be Good Be Real Be Crazy!  Three teenagers. One road trip. Countless detours.

When Mia first waltzed into Homer's small corner of Florida, she changed Homer's entire world. It wasn't long before he was hopelessly in love. But now Mia is moving away and Homer and his younger brother, Einstein, are helping her drive hundreds of miles to her new home.

This might be Homer's last chance to tell Mia how he really feels. And with so many detours in front of them, anything could happen.

Chelsey will also present a workshop for aspiring writers on writing and inspiration; From Inspiration to Story to Page

“Inspiration is bouncing a rubber ball off a brick wall until it finally hits you in the face.” ~Sherman Alexie

In this hour-long workshop, we’ll cover the science and craft behind inspiration and how to transform snippets of ideas and random thoughts into characters and plot. Workshop attendees should come equipped with paper and pen (or a laptop) and lots of questions.
