Wednesday, Jan. 15, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., award-winning author Stella Pope Duarte will conduct a workshop entitled “Bright Beginnings: New Year, New Writing” at Changing Hands Bookstore, 6428 S. McClintock Drive, Tempe, Ariz. To help those attending transform their writing, Duarte will talk about how to brainstorm, use the imagination, unearth family rumors and follow twisted pathways.

The recipient of a long list of honors and awards, Duarte was nominated in 2013 as one of four women Arizona Makers, inspired by the PBS special “Makers: Women Who Make America.” She began writing in 1995 after a dream in which her deceased father revealed that writing was her destiny. Since then, she has written for numerous publications and is the author of such books as “Writing Through Revelations, Visions and Dreams,” “Women Who Live in Coffee Shops and Other Stories,” “If I Die in Juarez” and “Let Their Spirits Dance.”

Born and raised in a South Phoenix barrio, Duarte has a Bachelor of Arts in education and a master’s in educational counseling. She speaks to audiences of all ages on a variety of topics, including writing and storytelling, women’s rights, and Chicano/Latino history.

Open to writers of all levels, the workshop costs $25, and space is limited. To register and prepay, call (480) 730-0205. Participants need to bring a notebook and pen to the event.
