Marty Ross-Dolen leads this reading and writing workshop where you will learn to use the tools of creative nonfiction to transform your personal stories into meaningful pieces of memoir.

You don’t have to be an English major or a bestselling author to develop the skills to create a writing practice that enriches your life and makes sense of your past. Join us for this informative and interactive workshop where you will learn to use the writing tools of creative nonfiction to reimagine your personal stories and transform them into meaningful pieces of memoir. During our time together, we will read samples of published work and take part in a writing exercise or two ourselves. The library will provide paper and pens, but feel free to bring your own writing tools if you would prefer.

Marty Ross-Dolen, MD, is a retired psychiatrist and received her MFA in Writing from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. Her writing focus is creative nonfiction, and she has recently completed her own book-length memoir. Her personal essays have appeared in North Dakota Quarterly, Redivider, Lilith, and Willow Review, among other literary journals. Her essay entitled “Diphtheria” was named a notable essay in The Best American Essays 2017. She has served as a reader and copyeditor for Hunger Mountain Review.

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
