For those who were at Amanda McTigue’s workshop today, what did you think? Terrific, wasn’t it? Now, we’re setting up for the next event on Nov. 8: Sizzling Scenes with C. S. Lakin. Should be another terrific program. Check out our “Next Program and Events Calendar” page and plan to come. Don’t forget: you can also “buy now” with PayPal and make your registration a snap.
We’re fortunate to have Amanda McTigue joining us on Oct. 11 to conduct a workshop on the subject of “voice” in our writing. Visit our “Next Program” page to learn more about it. This month, as a new feature, you will also be able to register online via PayPal in advance of the workshop.
Even as we end our 2013-2014 season with a fabulous program by Mary Mackey, our Board is planning our next season. We have a planning meeting in July, but we have already lined up the first program of the new season. On Sept. 13, Bridget Watson Payne, editor at Chronicle Books, will speak to us on “The Power of Words and Images.” See details on our “Next Program and Events Calendar” page, where you can also see the dates of our summer events. Check it out and have a wonderful summer.
Christa Fairfield and Jill Hedgecock, amazing leaders of our Young Writers Conference, are the joint recipients of the 2014 Distinguished Service Award. Taking over from Liz Pentacoff-Koehler, whom no one thought could be replaced, they have forged ahead with great success. The photo shows them receiving their award from Al Garrotto at the June 2014 meeting. Elisabeth Tuck is in the background.
Mary Mackey will round out our season by presenting on “How to Travel Like a Writer.” Timely, in light of our summer hiatus, she will discuss what it means to travel like a writer and how your unique perspective from your travels is critical to your writing. For details, see our “Next Program and Events Calendar” page. See you on Sat., June 14.
