RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Learn writing techniques at a two-hour workshop in the Ridgefield Library hosted by local author Chris Belden.

Basic elements of storytelling will be discussed, but most of the time will be spent doing on-site writing.

No experience is necessary. Just bring paper, pen and a willingness to explore. The seminar takes place in the Library Program Room on Sunday, Jan. 12, starting at 2 p.m.

It is limited to eight participants so register here to ensure a spot.

Belden is the author of two novels, "Carry-on" and "Shriver," as well as the forthcoming story collection "The Floating Lady of Lake Tawaba", which won the Fairfield/New Rivers Book Prize.

His essay "Inside Words: How to Teach Writing in Prison" was awarded the Bechtel Prize.

He is a graduate of the Fairfield University MFA program, founder of the Ridgefield Writers Workshop and co-organizer of the Ridgefield Writers Conference.

The library is located at 21 Governor St. in Ridgefield.
