Write After Lunch: A New SWG Talk Series
Did you ever wish you could lunch with an
author? Dine on words? The SWG has just the program for you! Join us at
noon on the first Tuesday of every month for our new luncheon craft
December 2: "Igniting Our Stories"
Speaker: Margaret Sweatman
This talk will be about our ideas for stories, the ones we haven't yet written, and will elaborate on several ways in which they can be structured for very different effects. Margaret will be discussing the differing effects of structure and narrative technique, of voice, and a story's relationship with time.
