It was a great day – and a great event! For anyone who says Peoria doesn’t have anything to offer to the arts community, I call foul. They just aren’t looking in the right place. Peoria is rich in culture, arts and entertainment, if you know where to look.
Ignite Peoria was so much fun!
We hosted two informal workshops for kids this afternoon. We came armed with handouts and workbooks, and had a great time talking about some story basics!
Turns out, most of our audience was already well-versed in fiction mechanics. We spent our time talking about their experiences writing and how to trouble-shoot when they run into problems, deal with writer’s block, don’t know what to write next, or even how to deal with the dreaded inner editor!
I loved meeting each and every one of our young writers. To them, and to you, I wish you,
