Workshop slated with Middlesboro native

Tess Collins

Have you ever wanted to write a book? Or maybe you have one started and don’t know how to finish it.

Novel Writing 101 with Tess Collins will be held from 10 a.m. to noon on July 11 at the Middlesboro Public Library in the Beverly Greene Community Room.

Learn how to structure a novel, how to make characters jump off the page and how to create a fictive dream where readers won’t want to put your book down.

Collins, an award-winning author of six novels and one non-fiction book, was born and raised in Middlebsoro.

Her latest novel is “The Hunter of Hertha,” the second book of her Midnight Valley Quartet.

Collins received her BA from the University of Kentucky and a Ph.D. from The Union Institute and University.

Bring your “chapter one” if you have it written and if you don’t, you’ll know how to start by the end of the session. The workshop is limited to 20 participants.

Register at the library’s front desk or call 606-248-4812.
