Do you dream of writing about your travels in a meaningful and entertaining way? Then you may be interested in the Travel Writing Workshop being offered by The Kingston Frontenac Public Library.

Author Linda Kenyon will be at the Isabel Turner Branch hosting a writing workshop that will help you bring your travels to life. The 90 minute workshop will show you how to craft a well-constructed piece that brings to life the places you’ve been, as well as tell a meaningful story.

Linda’s book, Sea Over Bow: A North Atlantic Crossing, is an adventure story, but it also has depth and meaning as she explores her life after her 25 year marriage dissolves, and she learns to mend her broken heart.

“The book is her account of the journey to the Azores she and her husband Chris Hatton took, across the North Atlantic in their sailboat,” shared Anne Hall, Librarian, Programming and Outreach at KFPL. “It’s also about how meeting Chris, learning to sail, and re-engaging with nature helped her regain confidence after her first marriage ended.  Another thread is the boating community that supports them along their way – something that’ll be of interest to local sailors.  After the workshop she’ll be selling copies of her book.”

The Travel Writing Workshop will run from 2pm until 3:30pm on Tuesday August 13, at the Isabel turner Branch of KFPL, 935 Gardiners Rd. Open to adults and new adults, this workshop is free, but spaces are limited. Interested participants are encouraged to reserve a space, and registration opened at 9am on Saturday, August 3. Get more information and reserve a spot here, or reserve by phone at (613) 549-8888.

Bring a pen and paper, or a laptop, and be prepared to do some writing.
