Writer’s Aid: The Writer’s Corner

dont-touch-toad-coverHere is but another writing workshop, but here’s the twist: there is no promise that you will be guaranteed a best-selling line. Instead, all writers are welcome to try and capture their muse if it decides to present itself at this opportunity. Catherine Rondina is an award-winning author, acclaimed for her book Don’t Touch that Toad and Other Strange Things Adults Tell You. Although you’re not supposed to touch the toad, Catherine will help you cuddle up to your own ideas to turn them into some motivated story lines.
