Portage Library to host fiction writing workshop May 28

HOUGHTON -- The Portage Lake District Library will host a fiction writing workshop with local author Rekha Ambardar from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 28.

Ambardar will present "Show, Don’t Tell," a workshop that focuses on the importance of presenting fiction with the use of scenes versus exposition. Participants will learn how to construct scenes which 'show' the story rather than 'tell' the story. Participants will also analyze fiction pieces and do short exercises that demonstrate the technique.

This workshop is geared towards adults and young adults, and both experienced and beginning writers are welcome. Writing materials and handouts will be provided.

Ambardar is a local author who has published over one hundred short stories and articles in print and electronic magazines, including Shots Detective Magazines, Untreed Reads, Orchard Press Mysteries and others, as well as in themed anthologies of mystery, horror, and paranormal fiction. She is the author of two contemporary women’s novels and teaches at the International School of Business at Finlandia University.

Library Programs are free and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit
