This great event brings Prince William County Public School parents/guardians together with their middle school or high school students for a day of writing side-by-side! Families can choose from a variety of sessions and enjoy the experience as a community of writers.
Coming March 11 at 10 a.m.
A hybrid event featuring author and publisher Susan McCorkindale!
Susan works with InsideNova and produces Haymarket-Gainesville Lifestyle magazine. She'll give us the ins and outs of press releases and media and touch on marketing, too! Join us online or in-person.
Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more information!
