We are designating this year, "The Year of the Novel" for our chapter. Are you writing a novel or hoping to start one? Our meetings this year will help you make great progress as well as connect you with helpful, novel-writing friends. 

Each month this year we will be studying various areas of novel writing: How to Plan Your Novel, Plot Storming, Drawing Great Characters, Show Don't Tell, Mastering Point of View and Deep POV,  Hooking the Reader, Goals of the First Chapter and Last Chapter, Editing Like a Pro,  and much more!

You don't want to miss a single session!

Sat. Feb. 27, 2021, 2-5 PM                    Year of the Novel free Workshop               Part 2: Plotting Your Novel
 (Note: Meeting will be cancelled in case of snow or ice)

NOTE: Church Entrance Update Jan. 2021

The church has had a broken pipe and water damage on the floor with the elevator. 
So it will not be in use, nor the double glass doors, but a smaller white door beside them.
Park on the same side of the church with the long handicap ramp which is behind the small white house. Look for a solid, smaller door beside the double glass doors. Go inside and up the stairs to the second floor, then down the hall to our usual class room. Signs will be posted to
 guide you! 

Have a Piece to Critique? 

The second half of our meeting consists of a critique session for members. Members must attend at least one critique session before submitting a piece for critique. Visitors are welcome to sit in and offer feedback. Submissions must follow the critique format guidelines listed on another page on this chapter blog. Format includes:

  • Up to 1,200 words
  • Double spaced lines
  • Numbered lines
  • Your name, genre, and title  on header
  • Six stapled copies 

All fiction and creative nonfiction submissions are welcome, but, sorry, not poetry. Visitors are welcome to sit in the critique sessions and offer feedback.
