Author Ken Pelham
Carol Anderson

Award-winning author Ken Pelham will present a free writer’s workshop at the Leesburg Public Library on Saturday, January 25th at 10 a.m. Writers and aspiring writers are invited to attend a free program, “Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Writing in the Fictional Point of View” presented by author Ken Pelham at 10 a.m. on Saturday, January 25th at the Leesburg Public Library, 100 East Main Street, Leesburg. Pelham’s novels, Brigands Key and Place of Fear, both first-place winners of the Royal Palm Literary Award, sweep the reader into mayhem and suspense. Learn from Pelham how to (and how not to) write consistently from a character’s point-of-view and how to avoid the traps and trips of viewpoint. Examples of point-of-view mistakes and guidelines for avoiding them in both fiction and creative nonfiction will be presented with humor and expertise.
