Our next meeting:
Date: Saturday, October 12, 2019
- Board Meeting: 10am
- General Meeting: 11am
- Workshop: Characters with Disabilities by Emily and Kari Moran
In this workshop, writers will learn about the multitude of disabilities that are under-represented in today’s literature, whether main or secondary character. They will discern which words should not be used to describe those with different abilities and words that should be used. They will determine the proper course of action when gathering information about a specific diagnosis in order to accurately portray a character with said diagnosis. They will delve into the emotional and psychological perspectives of those with disabilities as well as the technical realities and legal standpoints regarding medicine, education, and the environment.
- Feedback Session (members only)
Place: TBA, Baker Free Library, Bow, NH
(Remember to park in the adjacent lots. Do NOT park in the library lot.)
REMINDERS: Contact Gina Leuci to reserve your spot for the feedback session. All members are welcome to stay for critique, but to bring pages, you need to reserve your spot.
