Simon Rose leading writing workshops in Calgary February 3 and 5

Simon Rose is offering workshops on "Writing and Publishing Your Children's Novel" in Calgary on February 3 and 5.

On Tuesday, February 3, from 7 to 9, he'll be leading a workshop entitled Inspiration, Imagination and Invention. "We examine the writing process from initial concept through to the finished manuscript, including how to turn ideas into stories, the creation of outlines, story structure, character development, the role of research and the importance of editing and revision," Simon says.

The second workshop, on Thursday, February 5, also runs from 7 to 9 p.m. "Marketing and Promotion" "explores websites for authors and writers, online marketing, media relations, book launches and bookstore signings, promotional events, securing speaking engagements, as well examining ways to research and submit to publishing houses."

Both workshops will be held at the Palliser Bayview Pumphill Community Association, 2323 Palliser Drive SW, Calgary, and the cost for each is $50. Interested writers can register at or at (403) 285-9383.
