*Please note the date for the workshop has changed from April 28 to May 12.* The last two years have been unlike anything most of us have ever lived through. How do you work the pandemic into your creative work? Or should we ignore it altogether? In this workshop we’ll explore options for incorporating (or not) the pandemic, and other historic events, into the stories we write.
Amy K. Nichols is the author of the YA science fiction novels Now That You’re Here and While You Were Gone, published by Knopf BFYR/Penguin Random House. She served as a Teaching Associate with the Your Novel Year program at the Virginia G. Piper Center for Creative Writing, as well as the Writer in Residence for the Glendale Public Library. Insatiably curious, Amy dabbles in art and quantum physics, and has a long list of things to do before she dies. She lives with her family outside Phoenix, AZ.
Due to social distancing health and safety precautions, this Writer in Residence program has moved to a virtual format and is being presented via Zoom. In order to participate, you must include an email address with your registration, so that we can contact you with the Zoom login information.
This program is supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the institute of Museum and Library Services.
All events at the Glendale Public Library are public, and participants may be photographed by the media and or City staff for future print and/or online publication.
