My Workshops for Dark and Stormy Beach Weekend:

Writing From Life: Flash Fiction

It’s short. It’s fast, and it’s fun. Mindy will lead us through exercises to “mine our memories” for ideas. Then, we’ll take those rich ideas and turn them into pieces of flash fiction. You’ll learn about publishing markets open to Flash Fiction. This is a great workshop for writers wanting to learn more about Flash Fiction, memoir writers looking for new writing ideas, and high school writing teachers looking for new ways to teach writing.

 Writing the Picture Book

Picture books are the most beloved story form of children’s writing. But, how easy is it to write a picture book and how can the knowledge of picture book writing help writers who are working on longer stories? Join Mindy to learn to create a memorable character and how to structure a picture book. The workshop is perfect for writers and educators who want to better understand how to work with and teach the elements of story
