IvyKids Writing Workshop: Choices and Consequences with Author Kathy MacMillan (Grades 7-9)

The Ivy Bookshop

Kathy MacMillan, author of Sword and Verse and Dagger and Coin, will show you how to analyze your story through the lens of choices and consequences to create coherent plots, compelling characters and satisfying endings. 

Dagger and Coin, the sequel to Sword and Verse, follows Soraya Gamo as she attempts to rebuild a nation after the downfall of the monarchy. She can, at last, use what everyone once told her to hide: her brain. But not everyone is ready to accept that the Arnathim are no longer enslaved to the Qilarites. So when a slave ship arrives in the city, full of Arnathim captured before Qilara fell, the civil unrest that has been bubbling since the rebellion erupts.

Forced to confront her own prejudices, Soraya struggles to gain the trust of the people she once disregarded and establish peace in what has become chaos. Friends become foes, adversaries become companions, and the clashing of classes threatens to unravel all the good she has been trying to do. Can Soraya, raised to be a submissive Qilarite lady, learn to be a true leader? Or will the sins of her past forever haunt the footsteps of her future?

$30 fee includes a signed copy of Dagger and Coin and an Ivy Journal. Grades 7-9. RSVP to 410-377-2966 or MarthaAtTheIvy@gmail.com by October 14.
