Have you ever wondered what it would be like to watch the scenes you’ve written come to life? Not through a movie or through a long-awaited play, but through you performing the scenes. On Saturday, March 4 from 2:00 p.m. till 4:00 p.m. you will have the opportunity to act out scenes in Midwest Writing Center’s Make A Scene Fiction/Storytelling Workshop. Midwest Writing Center is located at 401 19th Street in Rock Island on the ground floor. The cost is $15 for MWC members and $20 for non-MWC members. You can purchase tickets at this link: http://www.mwcqc.org/make-a-scene-workshop/ and you can visit the facebook event page at this link: https://www.facebook.com/events/1652975895007728/.

The class is led by Misty Urban, a teacher, medieval scholar, and an author of an award-winning book of short stories titled A Lesson in Manners. She wrote her first story at the age of five and her first novel at the age of 16, both remaining unpublished.
