Meetings

APRIL 15, 2017

Join us for a full day of education and inspiration with bestselling author Bob Mayer!

Morning Session: Character and Point of View

This goes beyond just first person, third person and omniscient voices. The point of view you write in is your voice as a writer and often the issue lies deeper than simply a mechanical device. For example, voice dictates what you can say about your characters and what you can’t. It also sets you apart from others and makes you distinct. The most critical component of a novel is character. How do you go from flat two-dimensional characters to vibrant three-dimensional ones.

Afternoon Session: The Military for Writers

An introduction to the military from conventional warfare, through Special Operations, the War on Terror, weapons of mass destruction and insight into the men and women who make up our armed forces—all tailored for the writer who might need research in this area.
