This large group of writers based in Las Vegas, NV, is one of the most active and supportive I've ever met! They regularly invite published authors to read from their books, describe the journey to publication and offer information to help other authors reach their writing goals. They've invited me to read from Winter Light, where I'll talk about the book's long, circuitous journey. I hope you'll join us!

I feel very lucky to be invited to teach this 2-hour Zoom workshop! Here's the description:
There’s no way your character can authentically voice a fabulous comeback, desperate plea or brilliant courtroom argument until you know exactly how s/he operates! Through discussion and writing exercises in which you’ll actively work on your own characters and scenes, Martha Engber, author of GROWING GREAT CHARACTERS FROM THE GROUND UP will first explain how to grow your characters, whether for a memoir, novel, screenplay or other project. Then she’ll teach you the secret to fantastic dialogue that leads to exciting, unforgettable scenes where your characters truly speak for themselves!

I hope you'll come to what is always a fantastic, supportive experience!
