MAKING IT AS A WRITER with SALLY COOPER
TUES SEPT 9
Hamilton Room, Central Branch, Hamilton Public Library
What does living as a writer look like and how does one get there? Take a look at the nuances of the writing life: from “making” the story to “making it” and what that means. How do writers get and stay inspired? Why is it important to show writing? How do we connect with readers and other writers? Self-talk; time management; motivation: these are all aspects of making a life as a writer.

The author of acclaimed novels Love Object and Tell Everything, Sally Cooper has published short stories in several magazines such as Grain and Event. A long-time professor at Humber College, Sally Cooper happily devotes her time to writing and raising her two children.
