Tewksbury Writing Group Meeting:
Get The Perspective Of An Agent, Editor & Successful Author
Tuesday, February 16, 7pm-8:30pm
**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL PROGRAM THAT WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. Registrants will receive a link to access the Zoom Meeting via email 24 hours before the program.**
Are you a writer — or an aspiring writer — looking for some support? The new Tewksbury Writing Group, which generally meets the third Tuesday evening of every month, is open to everyone who’s interested in writing — all genres, all skill levels. Each meeting — which will take place via Zoom — consists of some conversation, followed by a guest speaker (typically a published author) offering some tips of the trade, followed by a period of reading & friendly critiquing via breakout sessions. (In the breakout sessions, authors of like genres will be grouped together.)
This month’s guest speaker is Paula Munier. Paula Munier is an an agent, editor, and successful author. She’s also active in regional mystery organizations and conferences. Paula is the author of The Writer’s Guide to Beginnings: How to Craft Story Openings That Sell; Writing With Quiet Hands: How to Shape Your Writing to Resonate with Readers; and Plot Perfect: How to Build Unforgettable Stories Scene by Scene. She’ll offer tips to aspiring writers from multiple perspectives — as an agent, editor and accomplished author — and welcomes questions.
The group is facilitated by author Dale T. Phillips, who has published novels, story collections, non-fiction, and over 70 short stories. Stephen King was Dale’s college writing teacher, and since then, Dale has found time to appear on stage, television, radio, in an independent feature film, and compete on Jeopardy (losing in a spectacular fashion). He’s a member of the Mystery Writers of America and the Sisters in Crime.
Judy Copek will be a guest on Lois Winston’s blog on February 1, 2021. Besides sharing information on her latest book, Murder in the North Woods, Judy will demonstrate a craft and give you her Mom’s super-duper lemon squares recipe. https://anastasiapollack.blogspot.com/2021/02/crafts-with-anastasia-fire-starters.html
