February Meeting

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!

January Meeting

Critique Session

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!

Deep POV with Tim Waggoner

Where: King Road Branch Library, 3900 King Rd, Toledo, OH 43617

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!
