Calling all writers: WKTV News presents a writing workshop with Tom Rademacher

Tom Rademacher Update: Due to an unforeseen conflict, the writing workshop will be postponed to a later date!

Every artist has a palette full of basic building blocks in which to create their masterpiece. Painters have a palette full of individual colors, sculptors start with a slab of stone, and writers are privileged to the 26 letters of the alphabet and a story at every turn.


This Wednesday, May 4, Tom Rademacher – national award-winning author and former columnist for the Grand Rapids Press – will host a writing workshop at the Kent District Library’s Kentwood (Richard L. Root) Branch to help teach and inspire writers to utilize their full palette.


The writing workshop is one in a series of workshops put on by WKTV News to reach out to potential citizen reporters in the community. The stories in our communities are engaging, endearing, and endless, we just have to tell them!


The workshop is an opportunity to learn from one of the best storytellers around. Tom Rademacher made his mark writing about everyday individuals whose impact ripples throughout the community.


Following the presentation, there will be time for a question-and-answer segment. The writing workshop is free and open to the public.
