Love words? Then sharpen your pencil for WordLaunch, a “how to” series of workshops beginning June 11, designed to help you achieve your writing goals.
The workshops, sponsored by Cisco Writers Club, will be held at Prosperity Bank, 418 Conrad Hilton Avenue in Cisco, from 1:30 – 3:00 each Sunday afternoon. A question-and-answer period with time for individual help will follow.
Nancy Robinson Masters of Abilene, award-winning author of over 40 books, leads off the series with two short but intense sessions on writing books. Nancy is in demand as an inspiring writing teacher and motivational speaker. Her more than 3,000 feature articles have appeared in a variety of publications. Nancy’s writing has taken her around the world including traveling with the National Science Foundation in Antarctica.
“My sessions will include information about writing fiction, non-fiction, and children’s books and will include answers to many of those questions you wanted to know but were afraid to ask about self (independent) publishing,” says Nancy.
Nancy has been described as a combination Minnie Pearl and Will Rogers. A licensed pilot, she uses her warmth, wit, and down-home style to motivate individuals to “climb on course.”
She resides on a farm in the Elmdale community near Abilene, Texas, adjacent to the airport built by her husband and writing partner, veteran aviator Bill Masters.
Nancy Robinson Masters is a popular inspirational speaker for schools, businesses, organizations, and events. She has spoken to more than 200,000 students in schools across America through her visiting author programs.
In addition to her work with schools, Nancy also presents programs and workshops for businesses, civic organizations, and religious groups. Her most important work in life, Nancy says, is “teaching children in Sunday School.”
Nancy grew up on a cotton farm in Jones County, Texas, during the terrible years of drought in the early 1950s. She credits much of her success today to the values, patriotism, and work ethic instilled in her during those difficult years.
The WordLaunch Workshop series continues through July, covering the nuts and bolts of writing short stories; articles; columns and short shots; writing for children; and poetry. WordLaunch is sponsored by the Cisco Writers Club of Central Texas as a companion to their annual summer writing contest, now in it’s thirty-first year.
Register at the door. Cost is a low $15 per session, or a money-saving $80 for all eight, paid in advance. Students, teachers and seniors (over 60) pay a discounted $10 per session.
