Join us Saturday January 18th for Amber’s program:

Archetypes can be used as a shortcut to character development, which is effective as long as you build on this “template” with your unique voice and viewpoint to make a real person. We will discuss how you can use archetype without falling into cliche. What are some of the worst character cliches you’ve seen? On the other hand, who are some of your favorite characters? Do you know what archetype to which they would likely belong?


GetPublished! is back too, featuring Priya Ardis talking to us about Successful Book Launch Promotional Strategies. Program starts at 10AM.

Please join us Saturday, December 14th for our annual holiday gathering.


Same Bat time, same Bat location.


Bring an ornament for the traditional ornament exchange.


We’ll play a game and hand out writing awards as well as the Yellow Rose Award.


Come celebrate the season and your fellow chapter mates with food, fun and fellowship.


See you there!
