McKeon-Pierce, Lonna Oral History: Connecting to your Family with Storytelling Genealogy,

This interactive program is ideal for conferences, church groups, clubs, libraries, and retirees. Many techniques are given for gathering and sharing family stories that reveal "Aha!" moments about who we are and what our family gifts and curses are. Using family photos, artifacts, and songs to get the juices flowing, many workshop participants experience epiphanies and connect with their families and communities in a new and enriched way.

Zalben, Jane Workshops/Residency on Writing Process and Illustrating Children's Books Literature- Creative Writing,
Literature- Authors,
Visual Arts- Painting
Writing in the classroom per grade level. The teachers can combine classes together (one or two are also okay) to focus on the writing/illustrating aspects of creating a childrens' book, whether it is a novel or picture book. Materials are passed around individually in this setting, so it is more personal than an assembly setting, therefore exposing the children to the process in a hands-on manner of what is like to be an author/artist of books. An age-appropriate reading of my work is done. I write and feel comfortable speaking to all ages! Fiction, young stories, poetry, non-fiction, cookbooks - I do it all and the art as well.

Richter, Chip Imagination, Creativity and Inspriation Literature- Poetry,
Literature- Creative Writing,
Singer-Songwriter Chip Richter’s Family Concert at The Library is more fun than a Kid (or Parent) should be allowed to have! It’s the kind of high-energy fun and audience participation naturally found in a live performance all in the wonderful learning environment of the public library. This is live music, no accompaniment tracks, so anything can happen! With his guitar, banjo, harmonica, stories and original tunes Chip connects with the kids and adults, creating moments to remember. Chip’s schedule for the summer of 2013 is beginning to fill up and we would love for your library be part of the fun. Chip's show connects with this year's Dig Into Reading theme as he shares original songs, some familiar favorites and stories that will inspire kids to dig into the wonderful adventure of reading. He'll be reminding kids and parents to consider what an amazing treasure the library is for our families and how uncovering just the right book at just the right time can be like finding a precious jewel or gem well worth digging for!

Ekblom, Christopher Whats your Story? Literature- Creative Writing
Anyone can resist a presentation but no one can resist a good story! This detailed storytelling workshop will demonstrate how a great story is told and begins with a hilarious recollection about time travel and talking coconuts. There are ways to make a good story really great. One way is to be authentic and truthful. For example, pick on yourself and recall a time when you felt most embarrassed, scared, or nervous. Good luck finding someone who doesn't want to hear why you slid down the stairs in a cardboard box! The art of storytelling is a powerful tool that helps us communicate and illustrate our life experiences with others. Humor, animation, and movement are key to great storytelling. This engaging program will guide participants through the entire process of crafting a captivating, suspenseful, and authentic story from start to finish. Find your voice and become a great teller of stories!

Luper, Eric Teen Writing Workshop Literature- Creative Writing,

Teen Writing Workshop is a program that helps teens who are interested in writing to hone their skills at creating pages that pop. Students will learn about the incredible importance of: - first lines - first pages - sentence structure - cliffhangers - chapter beginnings - chapter endings - word choice Smaller groups work better for a program such as this (20 students or less), but two to three groups per day can be accommodated. This is not a program for reluctant writers. Teen Writing Workshop is geared toward teens who are interested in honing their craft and really making their prose jump off the page.
