Sheila P. Moses will conduct a writer’s workshop for young writers (grades 8-12) at the Alexandria Black History Museum. Parents are welcome to stay.
Moses, a Rich Square, North Carolina native, is an award-winning author of several books for teens and young readers including “The Legend of Buddy Bush,” “The Return of Buddy Bush,” “I, Dred Scott: A Fictional Slave Narrative Based on the Life and Legal Precedent of Dred Scott,” and “The Baptism.” She is also co-author of Dick Gregory's memoir, “Callus on My Soul.” She lives in Alexandria, Virginia.
The Simon and Schuster author and National Book Finalist will teach young writers how to tell a good story, what a publisher looks for in a new author, and how to make your story ideas a reality. This workshop is limited to 15 young adults. The Museum will provide snacks, but you can bring your own lunch.
