You dream of becoming a writer someday. Or maybe you have your family’s history in a box and want to write a book for your children. Or you often say this: “I’ve always wanted to write, but I’m not a good writer.”
Join writing instructor and author Heather Wright and young adult author Lori Wolf-Heffner at the Christkindl Market: They’ll show you how to start your project (the hardest part!), lead you through some exercises to help you organize it, and share their own experiences as writers. You’ll learn not only about the writing process, but you’ll also receive a list of trusted resources to help you finish your project.
Who should participate?
Open to all levels of writers. Suitable for anyone who wants to write a book.
Should you outline before starting a book? Or start by staring at a blank computer screen?
With limited writing time, a plan is essential. We’ll help you find a way to group your ideas into a workable plan.
I have so many story ideas, how do I pick one?
The first step is to choose the topic. With a little arithmetic, we’ve got this one covered.
Where do I find the time to write?
Slow and steady gets the job done, and we’ll show you a great technique for meeting your goals.
When and where?
Saturday and Sunday morning December 7 & 8 at 10:30 am ~ inside the Kinderecke Kid's Corner.

K-W author Lori Wolf-Heffner writes the uplifting series, Between Worlds, a series about family, memory, and friendship, and how those who lived long before we were born are still alive in us today. Lori dreamed of being a writer ever since she was a child and even wrote to children’s, author Jean Little, to ask how to make writing easier. Ms. Little replied that writing is never easy, but it took Lori another 25 years to accept that. In 2015, Lori’s journey into fiction began, when she was accepted into the Canadian Senior Artists’ Resource Network’s mentorship program. In 2016, she published a short, creative non-fiction memoir about an ancestor, and in 2018, she published the first instalment of Between Worlds. Lori uses her family’s history to inspire her writing. https://loriwolfheffner.com.
