Write Track

Write Track is an informal discussion about writing topics held the second Saturday of each month. There is no charge for attending, though you'll probably want order lunch. We have a discussion lead who will kick things off by introducing the topic and telling a bit about their experience with it. Then it's time for you to ask questions, or share what you've learned about the topic. We have some fun with it and learn a lot.

Character Development 

A story is lifeless if your characters don't connect to your readers.

Character development is essential to all genres of writing, fiction and nonfiction alike.

Let's discuss the five critical elements of character development and what a three dimensional character actually is.

You will hopefully leave this lunch satisfied with a full stomach and with tools to help you capture your reader's attention.
