Writing Tough Topics for Teens

7:00 p.m., February 10, 2023 | Virtual Program

Join Edgar-Award winning author Mindy McGinnis for a workshop that covers writing tough topics for teens.

The real world happens to everyone; find out how to write about violence, sex, drugs, language, and more for teens in a way that connects with your audience.

This workshop is part of the Write@Wright Series sponsored by the Wright Library Foundation.
