Lake County News, CA – Local author to lead writing workshops at Main Street Gallery

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Local author Jordan O’Halloran will begin giving weekly writing workshops at Lakeport’s Main Street Gallery.

Starting Saturday, May 28, her writing workshops will be offered to the public every week on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. $10 per class. Registration is not compulsory.

This workshop will aim to make writing accessible and fun! Suitable for all ages, this writing course will help participants learn aspects of writing such as: putting your story into pages, the basics of building a story, and just making writing fun.

All are welcome in this inclusive, supportive and positive group only. Discover the excitement of writing in a safe artistic environment.

O’Halloran is a self-published writer located in Kelseyville Riviera. Her first book, “Clean Up on Aisle Three”, tells the story of teenager Lucy McBride.

While getting ready for work one morning, Lucy finds her boss, Raymond, dead in aisle three. Lucy is ready to leave Arizona after graduation, but with Raymond’s murder, she’s caught between being there for her family or finding her own happiness.

This book has been very successful and O’Halloran would like to share his love of writing with the community.

“I teach a writing workshop to bring my love of words and storytelling to Lake County,” O’Halloran said. She was inspired to teach after writing her book and being approached by locals who told her they had always wanted to write. She wants to bring her own joy of writing to people and help them see that their stories matter.
