Tunku Halim's Writing Workshop

Horror writer Tunku Halim will be in KL next month and is running a workshop for teens. The info from MPH:
Event: Creative Writing Workshop with Tunku Halim
Venue: The Booker Room at MPH Megastore 1 Utama, Petaling Jaya
Date: 20 January 2008 (Sunday)
Time: 11:00a.m.-3:00p.m.

Ever wanted to write a short story, a longer tale or perhaps even a novel? Tunku Halim, novelist, short-story writer and author of such books as A Children’s History of Malaysia, 44 Cemetery Road, Gravedigger’s Kiss and the soon-to-be-released Juriah’s Song will show you how. By using an array of tools such as setting, dialogue, plot, description, economy of words and creative flow, you’ll not only get started with full confidence but you’ll also see your work flourish off the page!

Hi Sharon!
I know this nothing to do with Tunku Halim's workshop, but could you help me with a favour by passing the word around about an advance screening that KL Weekly is holding for ATONEMENT? I've got free passes to give away.
