Writing with Evocative Prose: A Workshop with Alex Kosoris

February 17, 7 pm

Waverley Library Auditorium 
285 Red River Road, Thunder Bay

Northwestern Ontario Writers Workshop (NOWW) will be offering a free workshop entitled Writing with Evocative Prose. The facilitator will be Alexander Kosoris. Alexander discovered a love of writing in the late 90s, regularly contributing short stories to a blog called Apocalypse Madness. This quiet hobby blossomed into his first novel, Lucifer. He regularly blogs and writes reviews that can be found here, as well as his Facebook and Twitter feeds.

The workshop is free. No need to register.
For more information, check out the event on Facebook here!
