May 11 Meeting - Weight Loss for Your Writing

Storytelling is obviously a key part of writing a good book, but the way you write and the words you use (and don’t use) are equally vital. It’s just as important for your manuscript to be fit as it is for your body. 

Join Amy Knupp as she uses in-depth examples to discuss concepts such as trimming the fat from your writing, adding bulk without bulge, and toning your words to give them more muscle. 

Whether you’re self-publishing, writing for a traditional publisher, a newbie or seasoned writer, you can make your writing more powerful, which will keep your readers engaged, improve your pacing, and make for better storytelling in the end.

April 20 Meeting - Can We Build It?

Scenes are the building blocks of story. If your scenes are weak, the whole structure will fail. 

Join Ann Voss Peterson to discuss what makes a scene strong and how to construct yours to support a spectacular story.
