Event Details

There are two sides to every story…and sometimes three. I love to write. You love to write. They love to write. These are simple examples of the three points of view available to writers. If you struggle in choosing which would best suit your story, this writing workshop will give you some tools to help make the decision.

From January through March, the Mesa Public Library is hosting bestselling author and writing coach Dane McCaslin as its very own Writer in Residence. Dane will use the library as her workspace and hold one-on-one consultation hours to help aspiring authors fine-tune their work. To book your appointment, visit our sign-up form.

Dane McCaslin is the bestselling author of the Proverbial Crimes series, including A Bird in the Hand, When the Cat’s Away, and You Can Lead a Horse to Water. Dane is a writer, workshop facilitator, and former teacher with more than 20 years of teaching experience for students in middle school, high school, community college, and graduate school. Dane is presently working on a new cozy mystery series and has two of the three novels in the works as well as a brand new suspense trilogy. Follow her on Twitter: @mccaslin_dane.
