a delightful writer is a treat; to find an
excellent teacher is a treasure. But to
find both a capable writer and an inspiring teacher in
one person is indeed rare! I have been blessed
to find this exceptional combination in Belinda
Anderson. She's been a part of my life for four
years and I am the richer for it."

worlds and change timelines in a new writing workshop
with author Belinda Anderson on May 3 from 10 a.m. to
noon at New River Community and Technical College’s
Greenbrier Valley Campus in Lewisburg. The class
is titled, “World Building with Words: Writing
Speculative Fiction.” The two-hour workshop is an
introduction to speculative fiction, which includes
science fiction and fantasy and such genres as alternate
history. “This is perhaps the most open form
of playing with the questions of what-if,” said workshop
leader Belinda Anderson.
Anderson, the author of four books, has been recognized
for mentoring other writers. She has been named a Master
Artist by the West Virginia Division of Culture and
History to work with emerging writers through a grant
program. She is a past recipient of the West Virginia
Writers’ Just Uncommonly Good award, for mentoring and
promoting the written word in West Virginia.
Tuition for the class is $35. Preregistration is
required by April 29.
