Chapter Meetings


Our monthly chapter meetings are held at the Baker Free Library in Bow, NH.  Remember to park in the adjacent lots. Do NOT park in the library lot. Workshops start at 1pm.

March 9 (upstairs meeting room): The Glass Half Full with Lisa Olech

April 13 (downstairs meeting room): It takes a Village with Marianne Rice
Most have heard the saying, It takes a village. This is true in real life and also in the books we love to read. While many writers spend countless hours (days, weeks!) developing their main characters, often times the side characters get overlooked. How the hero, heroine, and even the antagonist interacts with others, be it friend, family, or foe, reveals a lot about the character. A large and diverse cast of characters can make for an exciting, layered, satisfying story. In this workshop, we’ll discuss tips and strategies for creating a well-balanced ensemble cast which will not only develop your H/H, but can also help lay out the framework for a series.

May 11 (downstairs meeting room): The Competition is Killing Me with Stephanie Giancola
Present state of industry and marketing & promotion strategies and options, what works these days and what doesn’t and why; provide resources for various marketing & promotions strategies.

June 8 (upstairs meeting room): TBD
