Wilder Museum to host writer’s workshop
The Wilder Museum of Warren County History will present a writer’s workshop by local author Reg Darling. Participants will be welcomed at the Wilder Museum, 51 Erie Ave., Irvine, at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, for an opportunity to learn how to improve one’s authorship skills in an educational and entertaining environment. The focus will be on using journals and memoirs as a foundation on which to build. Guests may discuss topics with Darling and other participants. Because the topic will focus on using journals, the discussion lends itself to sharing one’s personal stories. Adults interested in improving their own writing or those who simply enjoy reading the memoirs of others are encouraged to attend.
Darling is the author of “Boondock Politics,” “Hartwell Road,” “A Day’s Work: The Journals of William Gifford Deshner,” “Coyote Soul, Raven Heart” and his newest book, “Bullets and Bravado.” He holds a bachelor of science degree in general studies from Clarion University and a master of arts degree in studio art from Edinboro University. In the early 1990s, his paintings were featured in more than 70 exhibitions.
The Wilder Museum will be open to the public for this event from 1 to 5 p.m. for the last time in 2013.
Participants will be provided with a copy of Reg Darling’s “A Story of One’s Own: Reading, Writing, and Understanding Memoir.” Pre-registration is appreciated. For more information, call 723-1795, visit www.warrenhistory.org, or like the Warren County Historical Society on Facebook.
