Writing with Hemingway: A Writer’s Exercise Book is a unique concept for writing exercises and prompts. Cathy MacHold believes aspiring writers can learn from the famous author’s life as they practice writing exercises to hone their own talents. She has led workshops and has taught adult school creative writing classes using the concepts found in her book, presenting her teaching ideas as a participant on the Teaching Hemingway day panel at the XVII Biennial International Ernest Hemingway Conference held in Oak Park, Illinois.

Cathy will focus on the “hooks” that Hemingway inspires at the Sierra Writers meeting on Wednesday, February 8, at 6.30 p.m. in the Community Room of the Madelyn Helling Library.

A graduate of Sacramento State University, Cathy wrote training manuals for several corporations in the food industry and published Gourmet Nights in 1998. She looks forward to making her second dinner club book, The Vintage Feast, available as an eBook in 2017.
