Local author to lead writing workshops at Main Street Gallery – The Bloom

Local author, Jordan O’Halloran, will begin giving weekly writing workshops at Lakeport’s Main Street Gallery. Beginning Saturday, May 28, 2022, her writing workshops will be offered to the public weekly on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for $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 story building, and just making writing fun. Everyone is welcome in this inclusive, supportive and uniquely positive group. Discover the excitement of writing in a safe artistic environment.

O’Halloran is a self-published writer located in Kelseyville Riviera. His first book, Clean up in 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,” says O’Halloran. 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 by writing to people and helping them see that their stories matter.
