Lumberton Library to Host Creative Writing Seminar

The Lumberton Public Library will be hosting a Writing Enrichment Workshop presented by literary author William Hill on January 12th from 3 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.  Mr. Hill, a Young Adult artist/author, will be presenting a workshop which uses a creative approach to reinforcing the schools’ curriculums and supports state writing standards.  By mixing stage magic, interactive exercises, and visual media, Hill shows the power of words, discusses how to generate ideas, offers storytelling secrets and insights, and stresses the importance of editing and revising.  Mr. Hill’s show is appropriate for, and will potentially benefit, children of all ages.  This visit was coordinated with the Houston Area Library System (HALS).  Attendance will be open to the public by reservation.  Please contact the Lumberton Public Library at 409-755-7400 to reserve your seat for this event.
