Workshop and book signing with Anne Mazer

Local author Anne Mazer has written more than 40 books for young readers, including the award- winning "The Salamander Room,"the "Sister Magic" series and the bestselling "The Amazing Days of Abby Hayes" series. Her newest book, "Spilling Ink: A Young Writer's Handbook," offers practice advice in a perfect package for young aspiring writers. After receiving letters from fans asking for writing advice, Mazer and her co-author Ellen Potter, created a guidebook that mixes inspirational anecdotes with practical guidance on how to find a voice, develop characters and plot, make revisions and overcome writer's block.

Hosted by Creekside Books & Coffee Saturday Nov. 6 from 1 to 3:30 p.m., Mazer will provide a workshop that offers fun writing prompts to help young writers jump-start their own projects. Mazer will provide encouragement and guidance throughout the workshop. Pre- registration is requested for this free workshop. Call Creekside Books at 685-0379.

Mazer lives in Ithaca with her family, and her favorite thing about being a writer is being able to write in the middle of the night in her pajamas.
