April Meeting

Due to a scheduling conflict Doug Unger's presentation has been moved to May.

Join us for an evening with Maxwell Alexander Drake as he discusses

Point of View –

What is the point?

With so many terms and styles, diving into the mechanics of the craft of writing can be scary. And Point of View (POV) can be one of the toughest to tackle. Yet, if used correctly, POV is a wonderful and powerful tool that is the backbone of your story. Join award-winning author Maxwell Alexander Drake as he helps break this piece of the writing puzzle down into something you can use to enhance your writing style.

Maxwell Alexander Drake is an award-winning Science Fiction/Fantasy author, Graphic Novelist and Playwright. He is also the lead tie-in writer, senior editor and game story consultant for Sony Online Entertainment’s massive online game EverQuest Next. He is best known for his fantasy series, The Genesis of Oblivion Saga. Drake teaches creative writing at writers’ conferences and fan conventions around the country. Find out more about him at his website, www.maxwellalexanderdrake.com, more about the Genesis of Oblivion Saga at www.genesisofoblivion.com, and more about his latest graphic novel at www.downfallthecomic.com.

    I thought it was very informative. It explained the different POVs. I had always wondered about them. Now I know what they are and how they work.

    Liz - our general protocol is that we order food before during and after the speaker and we dribble it down our front while listening, then at the important part of the speaker summing up, they turn on the blender loud in our room and that's when you can pay. No problem, eat and learn.

      Excellent! I shall wear a dark-patterened top to hide the dribbles.

    I won't have time to eat prior to the event. What is the general protocol regarding sustenance? Are attendees able to order dinner, or is the general menu not available in the meeting area?

    Hello All :) I've been writing for the majority of my life but have never had the courage to submit any work. I'm excited to be surrounded by other writers for inspiration and motivation. Excited to meet you all!!!
