Hosted by the Trenton Free Public Library, writer/publisher Nicole Major will conduct a writer’s workshop today, Thursday, January 30 at 4:00 p.m. It’s a wonderful opportunity for young folks to hear from a master and learn how they can write a book themselves. If you have ever thought of being a writer – and many of us have – this workshop is for you. It will be held in the Children’s Room, will be open to public and is free. Take note that applications will be available for a free young author’s program offered in February.

Nicole Major is the author of Amina’s Wall. She has written professionally for more than two decades for a variety of publications, including The Fairfield Daily Ledger, The Jacksonville Business Journal, and The Rock Hill Herald. She’s written internationally for PC World Egypt, the Middle East Times, and Am Cham Egypt’s Business Monthly Magazine. In 1997, the Arthritis Foundation awarded her a Celebrate Independence Medal for a profile story she wrote highlighting a young woman’s struggle with an incurable disease.

Major is an MFA incumbent at Seton Hill University. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in interdisciplinary studies with concentrations in both journalism and social science from Thomas Edison State University. She lives in Mercer County, New Jersey with her husband Jason and their two daughters, Danielle and Gabrielle.
