News & Notes

Reminder: our craft-related reading selection this fall and winter is James Scott Bell’s Plot & Structure. Please read the assigned chapters and be ready to discuss the material. The schedule for the rest of the discussions is as follows:

  • 25 Oct – Chp. 4-6 (Rosie & Maddie)
  • 29 Nov – Chp. 7-9 (Casey)
  • 31 Jan – Chp. 10-12 (Richard & Marcia)
  • 28 Feb – Chp. 13-14, Appendix B (Jonathan)

Please note: for the next discussion session (25 Oct), Rosie and Maddie ask everyone to complete any one of the exercises at the ends of Chapters 4, 5 or 6, and come prepared to discuss whether or not it helped them with their current WIP.

Glenda’s essay on Jack London was published in the literary magazine First Line. She shared the published essay with the group on 11 Oct. Congrats!

Glenda recommends The Writer’s Guide to Psychology by Carolyn Kaufman. It describes various psychological disorders, their presentation and their treatment in layman’s terms.
