Grand County Community of Writers
The Grand County Library District is pleased to share the latest information about the one-of-a-kind writing program designed to encourage and develop the skills of local storytellers interested in producing works of both fiction and nonfiction.
Martin Smith will conduct a series of four weekly non-fiction workshops at the Granby branch in October designed to help nonfiction writers produce strong narrative journalism, personal essays, and memoir in the most compelling way possible.
Martin has a rich background as a lifelong journalist, author of five novels and four nonfiction books, and as a long-time faculty member of the Squaw Valley (Calif.) Community of Writers.
