You've got this!

Sometimes the scariest monster a young writer will face is a blank white page. Other times, it's just as intimidating to take on revisions. This is an opportunity to connect with Beth and tackle those tough moments together. She'll remind writers of the power in storytelling and give them the boost they need to take on all its thorniest steps.

During this problem-solving workshop, Beth will emphasize how grit, not talent, is integral to success. She'll breakdown her own writing process, with a focus on encouraging stuck writers to follow their curiosity and to take the time to tell themselves the story first.

Beth will offer an exclusive peek into the revision and rewriting process she goes through before a book is printed. This workshop will be mostly interactive, with Q&A opportunities for attendees to address specific issues.

About the Author

Beth Vrabel won a story contest in fourth grade and promptly decided writing was what she was going to do with her life. (To tell you the truth, she got fourth place.) Twenty-five years later, she had her first book signing at that same library. Beth is author of Cybils'-nominated Caleb and Kit, ILA award-winning A Blind Guide to Stinkville, the Pack of Dorks and The Newspaper Club series. To Tell You the Truth releases in June 2021. When she’s not visiting schools to talk about storytelling, Beth’s in New England with her family, two over-Instagrammed dogs and six chickens.
