More Than Just The Facts - Making Nonfiction Fun!

More than Just the Facts is a workshop for adult writers, presented by award-winning author Conrad J. Storad. Mr. Storad will provide his unique perspective on writing and presenting nonfiction materials to students ages 5 to 12. He'll cover the importance of word choice and using vivid description as a writing technique and how to write factual material in an entertaining manner. Writing is hard work, but it doesn't have to be boring!
