I'm so glad I came; it was an absolute enlightening presentation. What really stayed with me afterward was the part in which you were speaking about how you didn't become a writer until you started teaching. I understand this completely. Even though I consider myself a bookworm and doodle story plots in my notebook whenever inspiration hits, I have yet to actually follow through on one of those ideas, and maybe having a class full of eager-to-learn students will encourage me in some way too. Thank you for all of your insights, Amanda
We have been lucky enough to have Melinda Cochrane present 3 workshops at our library, during which, she shared her experiences in writing and publishing in a clear and relatable way. Each workshop attracted new people into our library and also brought back library users who were impressed with her professional qualifications. Melinda has a wealth of knowledge and her passion for writing is contagious! I think she really inspired all of our participants. At the end of each workshop, we had requests for more.
