Jennifer Swanson will be our speaker in December. Jennifer, the author of the award-winning Penny and Rio series of children’s books, will speak on the important topic of chapter and story arcs. As writers, we all want our readers to keep wanting to turn to the next page, then the next, and next…
In addition to writing children’s books, Jennifer leads a local critique group. Jennifer is a Naval Academy graduate, and has her MS in Education. She has taught as a middle school science instructor for John Hopkins University’s Center for Talented Youth.
After our speaker, we will have our two page critiques. You are welcome to bring two double-spaced pages of any work in progress for the group to critique.
For our November meeting, we welcome a wonderful local author, Belinda Hulin. She is a five-time cookbook author and a veteran magazine and newspaper writer and editor. Her latest book, almost makes my Louisiana mouth water - Roux Memories: A Cajun-Creole Love Story with Recipes.
Brenda has written her memoir cookbook, capturing the oral history and traditions that food represents, and the process of drawing that history from family and friends. Her talk: "Your Table, Your History: Writing Your Cookbook" will let you know how you can write your best by writing from your own history.
As usual, after we hear from Belinda, we will hold critiques of any two pages of any double-spaced pages of your work-in-progress.
