A community writing workshop facilitated by Anthony Funari will be held at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 13 at the Bonner Springs City Library, 201 N. Nettleton Ave., Bonner Springs.
Members of the community and surrounding area are invited to attend the free workshop.
Those who attend are asked to bring a short piece of their writing to the workshop, although it is not required.
Funari teaches writing and literature at Johnson County Community College, Overland Park. He is a published author and scholar of Renaissance studies. He works to help writers articulate their thoughts and to understand their readers’ perspectives.
Jack Granath, Bonner Springs City Library director, said the public is invited to attend and participate in the workshop. He said Funari plans to talk about techniques that author Ernest Hemingway used. One of the techniques is called the “tip of the iceberg,” where a little conversation and dialogue shows a whole world underneath it.
The community writing workshop is part of a statewide series of programs that celebrate 100 years of the Pulitzer Prizes and the life of William Allen White.
The program is made possible by the Kansas Humanities Council.
