Writers of Warrensburg to host online workshop featuring Linda Thomas


Can Write One!” an online workshop April 17 featuring Linda Thomas, a local author, speaker and memoirist.

With this workshop suited to beginners through authors with a manuscript seeking to publish, all will learn the steps and pitfalls of crafting a memorable memoir. 

Whether the subject of a memoir has led an ordinary or extraordinary life, Thomas has the knowledge to help writers better share their stories.

Thomas, her husband and their youngsters lived in Colombia, South America, for three years working with Wycliffe Bible Translators. Her memoir, “Please, God, Don't Make Me Go: A Foot-Dragger's Memoir,” captures both the joys and challenges of living in a remote locale targeted by Marxist guerrillas. 

Later, she and her husband, as empty-nesters, took an eight-year assignment in Africa. Her memoir, “Grandma's Letters from Africa,” covers her first four years working as a missionary journalist. 

Thomas' work has appeared in newspapers, magazines, newsletters and blog posts. Learn more at her blog, Spiritual Memoirs 101.

This free event is a two-hour session with Thomas and access to materials is provided. A computer capable of video and audio connection is required for the session.

Questions and enrollment may be made to Administrator G.A. Edwards at gaedwards1@earthlink.net or 660-362-0014. 

Writers of Warrensburg is a local group dedicated to furthering the skills of authors by providing information on writing craft, publication practices and effective marketing strategy. All are welcome at free online meetings on the first and third Tuesdays of each month.
