Join us on August 18th at the Washington Branch Library to create compelling characters!

Bring pen and paper, laptop or tablet, and start getting into your character’s psyche.
Come join your fellow writers for a critique of your work in progress! Bring a 5-10 minute selection to read and get valuable feedback. We hope to see you there!
Member readings. Come share something you’ve written with us! Washington Branch Library, June 16 from 10am to 12pm.

Back by popular demand, come work on your plot with your fellow writers! Use the plot breaking method to spot flaws in your plot, unresolved subplots, and where you should really start your story. Bring your work in progress and work on it!
Pump Up Your Plot
Join us on March 17th at the King Road branch library to work on your plot with your fellow writers!
SPOOC Your Fiction!
Jump-start your fiction by crafting the two sentence core of your story. Acclaimed novelist Deborah Chester advocates this method for making sure there’s enough story to your story – by writing down the Situation, Protagonist, Objective, Opponent and Climax in a concise two-sentence format before you begin. It’s a great tool for starting a novel, getting one back on track, or even creating an effective elevator pitch. Come try it out with us!
Join us at the King Road library for a chance to have other members critique your work. Bring a selection that can be read aloud in 5 minutes or less. It can be a whole story, part of a story, or just a little something you threw together! We hope to see you there!
Join us on Saturday, September 16th at the Reynolds Corners Branch Library for Member Readings! Share with your fellow writers, get some feedback, and see what everyone else is working on!

As Obi-Wan Kenobi once said, “Many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.” Compelling personalities make compelling reading, but as an author it’s tricky to really get your readers into your character’s head. Tim Waggoner has the answer. He calls it Deep POV – going beyond the surface to dig deep into your character’s point of view. Learn how to bring out your character’s deeper thoughts and feelings and truly engage your reader in their world!
Be sure to join us for this special event. Tim Waggoner has over 40 novels, a Stoker Award and several recent movie novelizations under his belt. He’s also a great teacher – he teaches Creative Writing at Sinclair College in Dayton! We’re very excited to have him join us!
