Author to offer free non-fiction writing workshop

SELINSGROVE — Journalist and author Matthew Lysiak will be offering a free non-fiction writing workshop to help aspiring writers and journalists through the process of getting their non-fiction ideas published.

The class will include speakers with a wide-range of non-fiction writing experience including newspaper, magazine writing, blogs, television news writing and authors who have successfully published their work.

Speakers will include writers from The New York Times, New York Post, New York Daily News, Huffington Post, The Press Enterprise, The Daily Item and WNEP.

“The goal of this workshop is to help aspiring writers demystify the process of getting their work published,” said Lysiak. “We will be bringing in writers who have achieved success in a broad range of platforms, from newspapers, print, to published authors, who can be used as powerful resource for aspiring writers looking to pursue a career in the field.”

The class will be limited to 20 students and is open to ages 15 and up.

The six-class workshop will be held every Thursday between May 15 and June 19 from 6-8 p.m. at The Rudy Gelnett Memorial Library, 1 N. High St., Selinsgrove.
