Get ready for another lively meeting of Word & Pen Christian Writers as we gather at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Menasha WI on October 12, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
- Kathi Bloy will facilitate the evening’s educational program (on CD from the 2015 Write-To-Publish conference). This month’s offering is “Write Fresh” by Erin Taylor Young, acquisitions editor at Redland Press, who says, “We want our readers not only to love our stories, but to love every word along the way.” We will learn how to engage our readers word by word through adding humor, vivid description, symbolism and metaphors, and dialogue that doesn’t dead end.
- Marilyn Hein will inspire us with her devotional for writers.
- Deb Schauland will provide refreshments, available throughout the evening, as well as open and close the meeting with prayer.
Chris S., our intrepid leader, invites all who attend to read aloud a one-page sample of their writing. Need an idea for this optional exercise? Chris suggests, ‘Write about something that happened suddenly–true story or fiction, any genre.”
Do you hope to come to the meeting? Please let Chris know by leaving a comment to this post. Chris says, “Knowing how many to expect is ever so helpful as we plan for refreshments and the number of educational handouts.”
