Get these dates on your calendar!

Fall will be here before we know it, so get these upcoming meeting dates on your schedule now before you're completely swamped!

All of these meetings will be held at 9:30 a.m., at the bank, as usual.

August 25: Exploring Media Tools - Audio & Video for Authors

September 22: Christine DeSmet will facilitate. We're planning something that will involve some pre-submission to Chris beforehand, so watch this blog and/or the loop for more details soon.

October 20: Carrie Lofty topic Snake-Bite Scenes and Hollywood Plots: Writing Action with Heart.

You have the beginning. You know how it should end. But what to do with those hundreds of pages in the middle? Use my so-called "snakebite scenes" to help characters acknowledge their deeper passions and bond over moments of danger--even when surviving everyday dramas--and analyze movie classics to see how Hollywood tells a rip-roaring story. For plotters, pantsers, and everyone in between, this course can unblock your creative process and help you add action and heart to every page.

Potluck - July 21

Summer is the time to relax and have fun, so instead of a regular meeting, we'll be having a potluck social (combined with a collage party for anyone interested). The potluck will be from 11:30 - 2:30-ish, and will be at Lisette's house.

Lisette has shared her address on the loop, but if you need it again, contact her directly, or contact Bobbi or Rachel.

Please note:  the Steering Committee will be meeting immediately before the general meeting, from 10 to 11:30.
