Create Your Own Book Workshop

The library is more than just a place for sharing great literature; it is also where you can create it! As part of the Stratford Writers Festival, our skilled librarians will lead a workshop on how to use our new and free online tools: PressBooks and Self-E. Join us for this free and informative event!

Get your ticket to attend this FREE event.

Promote your Book Workshop

Publicity can be a challenge for writers, especially when creating publicity materials. This hands-on workshop makes use of the library’s brand new MakerSpace, where participants will design and print their very own promotional bookmarks. Come with your book cover, logo, or artwork, and you’ll walk away with 50 bookmarks to use as a giveaway at your next book event!

This event is limited to 8 people so make sure you register early! Get your ticket to attend this FREE event. 

Empty Bowls Painting
